Messy Play with Confetti Circles
Messy Play is an important part of early education. If offers many opportunities for learning. It’s crucial to foster growth in all areas of development like physical, language and social development etc.
I would like to share with you all our recent play with confetti circles. I bookmarked this idea long ago from @howwemontessori / Instagram and I am so happy that Jolly B has recently stock many beautiful mixed colors confetti circles and K and I can finally try the play!
You just need:
-White drawing paper
-Mixed colored confetti circles
The confetti in bright colors are so beautiful!
She was so excited to see these beautiful dotted tissue papers!
First, we need to spread the circles on a white paper.
We just massaged the tissue papers a bit with finger tips and made them loosely placed on a white paper offered a good opportunity for finger exercise.
Also we tried to move the circles around with hands on the paper to create different patterns, that’s so much fun already!
Then I showed K using a pipet to drop water on each circle! Good fine motor exercise!
She discovered that she can transfer a confetti with the pipet!
See, not bad, what a beautiful piece of art!
What my toddler learned:
– A sensory play with water and she can also experience tissue paper texture and recognize different colors
– Fine motor exercise and hand eye coordination by transferring water with pipet
– Imagination can also be developed!
