Pinterest Challenge Day 5 -clip on prickles

I’ve been collecting ideas for developing fine motor skills in young children and thought paper clips would be a good idea because E.’s not done it before and it’s a no cost activity.

I realised that it was unlikely he’d be interested in ordinary paper clips so I pinned these but I didn’t have any thin ribbon so….

Clip on purple prickles

Clip the prickles on the Gruffalo

The ‘Gruffalo’ came from Teachers Pet (the website doesn’t seem to be working at the moment so it’s not a direct link). The prickles are purple felt that I hand sewed on.


E. found it really tricky so it’s going to take some practice until he can do it but it kept his interest.
