Young children will build confidence in their physical skills, coordination and control as they use this Set of Metal Pattern Makers. Selected for their quality, this set of essential early years resources can be used for shaping, scooping and measuring.
By providing a careful selection of dough resources, children’s play will become much richer in learning. Mathematical language will grow as concepts such as size, shape, counting, sharing, doubling and halving are explored. Playing with dough is also highly social – children will relax and talk easily to one another, often in role, as they make pretend family meals and celebrate birthdays together.
The tactile properties of dough make it fun for young children to explore. They find it really easy to use and can mould it in lots of different ways. It is easy to hold, squash and squeeze and can be flattened, prodded and poked. With support, children soon learn how to handle and use the equipment on their own. Whether working independently or collaboratively with adults, children will enjoy all of their explorations.

- Set of 7 robust metal dough utensils, featuring 2 pastry dough cutters, approx. 9cm, 3 spoons, 1 spaghetti measure, approx. 18.5cm x 6.5cm and 1 mini flat sieve, approx. 12cm x 9.5cm
