Using everyday materials from the house
This was our afternoon set-up yesterday – it was so quick to create yet and Z loved helping to make one herself. Here’s what you need:
You will need:
- Cork board (these are from IKEA)
- Elastic bands
- Drawing pins
- Early maths skills
- Hand-eye coordination
- Fine motor skills
I set up a basic grid on the cork board and invited Z to have a go at making shapes. There’s a few variations that you can try – for example I showed her how to make her initial, but as it was the first time we just experimented.
Recommended age: 3+
