Who knew a rock could keep them busy, busy, busy! With these sweet kiddo’s, I kept the ‘rock’ theme going and I had no idea they would stay focused and enjoy this activity so much.
What you need:
– big rock
-spray bottle (full of water)
-toothbrush (I used one that lit up to monitor sharing time)
-positive attitude because it does make a little mess!
-scripture to teach them the Truth!
“Two people are better off than one, for they can help each other succeed.” Ecclesiastes 4:9
Look how are they are working together…
This activity works several different skills:
1) Fine motor skills- Scrubbing with the toothbrush and spraying the bottle helps strengthen the small muscles in the hands.
2). Creativity- Allows the children to be creative and imaginative.
3). Language- Encourages them to communicate about what they are doing and how they are cleaning the rock.
4). Self-worth and Independences- Gives them the ability to complete the task, and not have to be directly monitored (however, supervision is always important). 🙂
