Cakie struggled at first as the pipe cleaners were thick and needed to be pulled through.
She soon got the hang of it and started to thread lots of necklaces and bracelets, wanting to wear them all in one go!
We had a go at making some in repeating patterns and others that had to be only in one colour.
Here’s one of her all one colour results- yellow matched onto yellow. Lovely!
And of course I had to model one too!
- creativity: exploring colours through matching and pattern making, making jewellery and models
- maths: sorting and matching according to colour, copying and creating simple repeat patterns, counting using 1:1 correspondence
- phse: concentration skills, finishing a project
- fine motor: developing the pincer grip by picking up small objects, strengthening hand muscle by threading and pulling
