Super Sunflowers!


Our super sunflowers have been practicing threading and learning to tie their own shoe laces! They have used their fine motor skills and concentrated when threading the lace through the shoe. They did such a good job at watching staff members do it first and then copying!

They were then shown how to tie their laces by making bunny ear loops. They tried really hard to do it independently and with little support were able to do it which was so incredible to watch!  They were so proud of what they could achieve and couldn’t wait to show their friends.

This activity has huge benefits for children’s hand eye coordination skills as it takes a lot of concentration to thread it correctly. It also is a huge skill to acquire from a young age as practice makes perfect!

Lots of love as always,

Leigh and the team xxx
