The Nuts & Bolts of Practical Life
So, what are the developmental benefits?
- Hand-eye coordination
- Self confidence
- Preparation for writing (pincer grip)
- Preparation for reading (left-to-right sequence)
- Learn to attach and remove a screw to a bolt!
For Classroom or Home
Supplies and construction:
- Wood picture frame with glass and hardware removed
- Quilt fabric (with hand–sewn buttons) glued onto frame
- Strips of ribbon glued onto edges (suggestion: tac the corners/edges for extra security)
- Fabric scraps cut into various slitted shapes, buttoned onto quilt
“The buttoning frame is on the shelf with the shapes already buttoned from the last child. They will use two careful hands to walk it to the table. They will then unbutton the shapes placing each one on the table. After all the shapes are removed and placed on the table, the child then chooses where they would like the shapes to be buttoned back on the frame. The buttons vary in size. So children can choose what size they are comfortable with or try one a little more challenging.”Thank you Sharlene for sharing!
