#Working[Mom/Dad]Moment- Thurs April 2nd


Today we thought we’d have a little MONSTER FUN!

Materials: YouTube, playdough, clay or plastacine, and all kinds of odds and ends around the house (ex. Pipe cleaners, buttons, googly eyes, straws cut into small pieces, gems, glitter, paper clips, pop bottle lids, tooth picks, pasta pieces, etc.)

If you don’t have playdough at home here are 2 different types of recipes for playdough:

Main Learning Outcomes: Developing fine motor skills (playdough is wonderful for hand strength), early literacy, creativity and sensory exploration.

Steps:

(1) First using this link (unless you own the book) get ready for a great read aloud of “Hey That’s My Monster”, by Amanda Noll. Here is a link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hh-ju18EoG0

(2) Now it’s time to make our own Monsters
