Using a Spatula (a 3-6 yrs lesson)

Using a Spatula with Beanbags

This activity uses bean bags and a spatula. Because my beanbags are the same on both sides, I did a quick few stitches on one side of each as a control of error so that the child can tell if the bean bag has been flipped over. When I put this together, I couldn't helping thinking it would have been fun to have circular beanbags that look like pancakes.

The beanbags provide a nice weight which really exercise the wrist and hand muscles.

This is a great idea! I think I will make some bean bag eggs and pancakes for my son using my felt food patterns. I think he would like the feel of the them being weighted and build his muscles.

Great idea! Will try to incorporate speech and language goals into this activity too.
