Hello EC Families!
I wanted to share a great craft idea from one of our Halloween parties this week! The students used playdough, sequins, pipecleaners, and googly eyes to create their own monsters. The best part of this activity was that children could take their monsters apart and create new ones for as long as they were engaged in the activity! Thus, the children were entertained by this activity for longer!
This activity could also be modified for other parties. For instance:
Another awesome idea for this activity is to put all the materials in individual ziploc bags for the students so they can take them home after the party! That way, they can still have fun with them at home OR if we run out of time at the party, the children can still do it when they get home!
Hello Preschool Families,
Fine motor skills are an essential part of preschool. Many children enter school with low fine motor skills. We use a variety of activities at school to develop these skills, but you can also help your child develop these skills even further at home during play and daily activities. Here are some ideas that you could try:
These are just a few ideas! Hopefully you find some of these helpful for your child at home.
