Learning Outcome: Problem Solving
Torn Paper Candy Corn
Build fine motor skills with this sweet treat of an activity! Ripping small construction paper squares is a great way to build dexterity, and it provides unique sensory stimulation. Gluing the pieces together onto another sheet of paper will help with categorizing and color recognition as well.
Grandparents’ Jewelry Holder
Many grandparents value their jewelry and watches because of their inherent value and the memories they inspire. Create a little bowl made specially for them to hold these items. We're going to use air-dry foam and putty along with our reusable inflatable forms to make these keepsakes.
Watercolor Weaving Mat
Combine a classic weaving activity with the beauty of watercolor! Weaving activities are a great way to develop fine motor skills and introduce crafts such as baskets and textiles. Liquid Watercolor™ adds a gorgeous watercolor component, and a chance to explore complementary colors.
Shoe Print Putty
Putty offers benefits for children of many ages. Younger children benefit from the sensory play and exercise of squeezing putty and older children are able to express themselves creatively by molding. This shoe print putty can serve as a cute classroom decoration or sentimental gift for parents.
Construction projects are a great way to reinforce engineering skills and vocabulary, and constructing a maze adds an added component of creative thinking! Introduce children to the concept of a maze, and use words like construction, build, structure, stability and hypothesis as they work.
