All you need is cardboard and playdough. This is great activity to foster fine motor skills. You jus make different size of holes on a piece of cardboard and fill them with playdough. You can also use different materials instead of playdough such as dyed rice, salt, oat etc.
Garlic press, potato masher, whisk, ice-cream scoop, wavy shape potato slicer. I am sure that you can find more options in your own kitchen. But I can say that “Garlic Press” was my favorite one. MB loved wavy shape slicer.
If you haven’t colored pasta yet, you should prepare very soon. You can create amazing sensory play setups and make amazing art with them. We used colored pasta to create amazing sea animals. It was both art and fine motor exercise.
We made viruses from playdough and toothpicks and talked about it. How did you explain this pandemic (corona virus) to your little ones?
I think the easiest way of explaining is to embody it.
