  • Dreamcatchers

    29 March at 18:13 from atlas

    February:  The children love threading beads, so we decided to thread beads onto pipe cleaners and make "dreamcatchers".  This provided lots of practice for children's fine motor skills, using eye/hand co-ordination to get the beads threaded on and strength and co-ordination of small hand and finger muscles.  Some found it easy and others persevered till they got it "I did it!".  There was some maths that came in with counting the number of beads they were threading on.  This was a fun activity and the children loved taking their dream catchers home.
