Funky Fingers

Our 'Funky fingers' area helps us develop our fine motor skills!

Just when you thought loom bands were a thing of the past, the children have really enjoyed using them this week in the funky fingers area. In order for them to develop their fine motor skills the children have been picking the tiny bands up one at a time and then stretching them to fit on the geo boards. Some children have tried to make triangles, squares and rectangles, while other children have investigated how far they can stretch the bands without them snapping! This activity has been a firm favourite this week with all the children. The grape scented bands have proved particularly popular with the boys!
