Little fingers got working and strengthening recently when our children used their hand/eye coordination to practise their threading on a metal dome.
They had to make decisions… which colour would they choose next? They had to investigate… how long was the piece they were using and how much could it be pulled before it came out? Which holes could it be woven through next and where did they have to place their fingers to enable them to grasp the ribbon to pull it back through?
Lots of choices to be made, lots of problems to be solved… lots and lots of beautiful ribbons to be interwoven to create a masterpiece!! We love the ‘randomness’ of the early years and how there’s method behind the madness in every unusual, wonderful, exciting invitation to play Xxxx
