In our kindergarten we like to think of creative ways to use daily life materials in original ways, to challenge kids’s patterns of normality and at the same time, to achieve our pedagogical objective. This semester we are going to work on coming up with original ideas to work on kids’s fine motor skills and the first we have presented to the kids are these three strainers and some pipe cleaners.
Our kids love the song Itsy Bitsy Spider and the strainers and the pipe cleaners allow them to make giant spiders!
Children train their concentration, fine motor skills and creativity! Great materials!
