Week 19: Sticky Art

22 Jul

My original Pinterest pins come from:

My child centred life

Nurture store

So I started off with setting out a few items that were easy to pick up and handle herself.

Here is Princess Peanut – she touched it straight away. It’s sticky!

With a bit of encouragement Princess Peanut started to put the pompoms on and off.

Then added some straws – also putting them on and off. In the end she decided she didn’t want anything left on there.

The inspiration for the second part of our activity came from..
The activity mom

I gave Princess Peanut some stickers and asked her to stick each one on a different part of her body. She is just learning the different parts – exciting times!

We were a little off with our knee!

We then switched to sticking stickers on the paper. Which was great fun, until Princess Peanut wanted to take them on and off. BUT – my mother and I came up with ingenious idea…..a laminated sheet! We’ve since tried it out and it works wonders…especially with those thick, puffy stickers.

Verdict: great, but quick with Princess Peanut’s concentration! She absolutely is obsessed with stickers at the moment – it is one of her favourite words!

Adaptions: as I mentioned above, the laminated sheet works perfectly for Princess Peanut as she likes to take the stickers off. She also likes to stick stickers on Mumma and Dadda too, so I can see an easy progression for her to use the name of the body parts, at the moment I am modelling for her “ooh you stuck the sticker on my arm”.

Until next time!

Week 18: Masking tape

7 Jul

The original pin comes from The Stay-at-home-Mom Survival Guide

This was a quick activity, so here we go….

We started off with a few short, individual strips of masking tape on Princess Peanut’s table and straight away she started to pull them off and hand each one straight to me!

Princess Peanut wasn’t too impressed with it sticking to her fingers though!

After Princess Peanut did the first lot of tape so quickly I put down some different length strips and overlapped them. Again Princess Peanut was straight to work.

Oh Mumma this is serious work, my mission is to get every last bit!

IMG_7667Please Mumma I don’t like it on my fingers – quick take it from me!

 

Verdict: a great little activity that got Princess Peanut’s fingers working on her fine motor skills. It was also an opportunity for Princess Peanut to have a go at a different sensory experience, while still not keen she completed the mission activity. I was surprised how quick she was, it only took a few minutes all up! No cost as we had masking tape at home – bonus!!

Extension/ Adaption: I was wondering how curling the tape would go, while it wouldn’t provide any more challenge in picking it up, it would make it sticky on the top side as well as bottom.
