Challenge day 6

For the 6th challenge we did some fine motor tuning with bean art. I always keep various types of dried beans in the house and often pull them out for sensory activities but today we added one of S's other favorite elements; glue. There is something very rewarding for her in squeezing out the glue all over the paper. A tactile sticky mess usually meant only for the hands of grownups- awesome. I was pleased to see her delicately placing the beans- first the big ones, then the little. By the end we were doing more of a scatter and shake method but concentrating all the same.. Next time I will maybe add a few other sizes and colors and also try drawing a shape or picture then filling in or outlining with the beans.
