Here's how we demonstrated it:
For our main activity, we traced all the kids on the non-pattern side of wrapping paper. They thought it was the greatest thing ever, and enjoyed lying on the paper to be traced, as well as seeing the finished product. They used their fine motor skills to decorate 'themselves' with crayons and markers.
The empty wrapping paper rolls also made for a fun activity!
The kids loved the idea of a fruit roll up that was nearly as tall as them!
And it turns out long fruit roll ups are fun to twirl. Who knew!
These activities can easily be done at home without much planning! Put that leftover Christmas wrapping paper to good use, get the measuring tape out of the tool box, print some different sized bears for telling the story of Goldilocks, and find a colored ball or a bean bag lying around the house. The only thing you may not have is the fruit roll ups!
Thanks for stopping by! Our next playgroup will focus on self and family!
