This month in Little Makers we worked on pinching. Here’s what we did:
Book: I call my hand gentle by Amanda Haan.
Song: Itsy Bitsy Spider. I talked about how the spider hand motion is really tricky for little fingers.
Activity: Each family got a tray with clothespins, tweezers, empty cups and a muffin tin. They also got a tray with stuff to pick up and move: beans, pom poms, buttons, felt letters, paper scraps, feathers, etc.
My only prompt was so see what you could pick up and move using the tweezers and clothespins only!
