Modelling and pottery are great creative classroom activities for children. Modelling is not just a fun task to engage the classroom, it builds essential skills too. Motivating children to use materials such as modelling clay encourages squashing and rolling, which in turn develops the small muscles in children’s fingers and hands. Coloured clay and dough can be used to gain strength and improve dexterity, which are critical areas of development for writing, drawing and other purposes.
