CRAZY WIRES

Things you will need:

Pipecleaners

Alternatives:

  • spaghetti

  • shoe laces

  • string

Colander

Alternatives:

  • steamer

  • sieve

  • box with small holes

Ask your child to push the ends of the pipe cleaners through the holes of the colander.  This is really good for developing the pincer/tripod grip and encourages hand/eye coordination.

Ways to extend:

  • Choose specific colours.

  • Make patterns with the wires.

  • Use positional language like, 'top', 'bottom' and 'side'.
