Every mother periodically has a desire to take the child and take a break from worries right now, this very second. In this case, you can offer the child to sort out pasta or sculpt something from plasticine. The main advantage of this lesson is the development of fine motor skills and the fact that the necessary materials are always at hand.
- - a regular A4 sheet;
- - plasticine;
- - pasta, peas, beans;
- - a box for scrap materials.
Let's prepare the pasta for work - if you have ordinary pasta, that is, spiral shells and so on, you just have to pour them into a box. If the pasta is spaghetti or pasta, you will need to break them about three times. Tip: children are especially interested in colorful pasta (sold in any large supermarket)
Also, for tactile sensations, I recommend adding whole dry peas and beans to the box.
Let's prepare a workspace: it can be a dining table or a children's table. If the child is very small, a highchair table is also useful. We free the surface from excess, put an A4 sheet closer to the child. Cardboard is great, but plain printer paper will work as well.
We install the box prepared in step 1 in an accessible proximity for the child.
Cooking plasticine. We divide the multi-colored plasticine into balls, pieces, cubes or other shapes. We put the prepared material next to the box. Advice: if your child is over a year old, let the child divide the clay. Believe me, this is not only very exciting, but also develops the child.
So, we put the child at the workplace and tell a fascinating tale about a fairytale forest with fabulous animals and offer him to plant his own fairytale forest, in which the most cherished desires come true. We demonstrate the technique: we sculpt a piece of plasticine on paper, insert as many pasta into it as the child sees fit. These will be our "trees". In the same way, you can make "bumps" and "dimples". We give the child space for creativity, and for the mother time to rest!
