Spaghetti Fun!


The Snowdrops have been enjoying pulling themselves to stand against our low level chest to explore this amazing dry spaghetti transferring activity. They used their pincer grip to pull the spaghetti out from the holes one by one.

Then, with adult guidance and demonstration, they were able to transfer the spaghetti from one colander to another, developing their concentration and fine motor skills. One little Snowdrop sat for a long period of time transferring the spaghetti from one colander to another adjusting her grip to push the spaghetti back through the different holes, trying over and over again when she misjudged the holes. It was brilliant to see their confidence and determination shine through.

Lots of love,

Everyone at Leighs xxx
