Sensory Spaghetti Fun!


Recently the snowdrops and sweetpea’s enjoyed joining in on one of our sensory activities. We explored the summer coloured spaghetti and the younger snowdrops used their pincer grip and whole hand grasp to pick up and feel it independently. The older sweetpea’s had a go at using tweezers to pick up the spaghetti, practicing their motor skills.
Whilst exploring the coloured spaghetti we also talked about nature. Hidden underneath the spaghetti were some pictures of flowers for the children to find. We talked about the grass being green, the same as some of our spaghetti and we also had some which was yellow like the sunshine!
We talked about how it felt and the snowdrops babbled and made different sounds, engaging in conversation with the adults and peers. Some of the sweetpea’s were able to say single words!
Lots of love,
Leigh and the team xxx
