Following my week of 'Dough Gym' and 'Funky Fingers' the lovely folk at TTS have given me some bits and pieces to give away that will help to get those fingers, hands and arms moving.
So this week I am giving away:
Some 'Insta Snow Powder'
If you haven't come across this before, this is great stuff. It comes as a powder and when you add water it transforms into 'snow' before your very eyes. A little bit goes a long way. Hours of fun!
I tried it out a while a go with my nephew Luca. I used iced water when we 'activated' the snow and that made it feel even more realistic.
This would be a great resource to use for developing shoulder and elbow pivots as well as some nice palm squeezing and finger dexterity with a bit of sprinkling.
Some Playground Chalk
These are really good for a whole load of uses but they are great for developing that pincer grip either by picking up with your fingers or a pair of tweezers.
I am also going to throw in a copy of 'Getting Ready to Write'. Which has got loads more information about mark making progression in it.
Here is how to enter:
