“Scoop and tip it out” was our play project using purple playdough today. As you might have figured out this was the phrase I chanted to encourage fine motor skills – squeezing, pouring, grasping, transferring and manipulating the chosen object. Playdough is Popular in this household and with each of my observations I add an extra component to the experience. Try adding these for some Scooping experiences:
Dump trucks, spades, lego pieces, kitchen utencils – spoons and ladles, empty bottles, the list goes on.
