Based on the research results obtained data, In the first cycle, the children's fine motor skills in playing playdough were still low. Most children have not been able to knead and make shapes using playdough, both when imitating shapes and printing according to the teacher's directions. This is because children still tend to like to play alone and pay little attention to the teacher's explanations. In the second cycle, the children's fine motor skills in playing playdough showed enough improvement but still did not show a significant increase. This can be seen from the results of children who get MB scores are still almost the same as those who get BSH and BSB scores, which is around 30%.
