{Sunbeams} Primary 1, Lesson 17




Here's some fun ideas to use our hands!

-Bring in some pipe cleaners and let the kids curl them around their fingers.
     You could also bring in more supplies and create little animals with the pipecleaners
     Bring in some pony beads and let the kids bead the pipecleaners


- Bring in a box/styrofoam chunk, golf tees and a child hammer, let the kids hammer the tees into the box/styrofoam.

-Bring different textures to play with and have a fun sensory activity. Play a "Seek and Find" by calling out different things you brought in. 
Texture suggestions:
