Indoor Activity For Kids:
Yarn and sandpaper kids activity
I like simple activities like this one where you only need a few items to make a great educational toy. You take sandpaper and yarn to create a yarn drawing board. You can also create pattern boards for your kids to replicate. Or they can create designs on their own.
This activity is inspired by ideas from Yarn and sandpaper kids activity.
What you'll learn
This activity is great to teach your kids:
Cognitive activities is educational play and is vital for your toddler's cognitive development – that is, your child's ability to think, understand, communicate, make memories, imagine and work out what might happen next.
Fine motor skills involve movement of the smaller muscle groups in your child's hands, fingers, and wrists.
Developing fine motor skills will help your child to write and prepares her for school. But it will also help your children with everyday tasks like eating, and dressing themselves.
Creative activities help children express themselves and create something from nothing, explore materials and activities and use their imagination.
Literacy includes reading, writing, and speaking. It is the basis of any child’s learning.
Literacy skills can be taught from baby age with playful games and activities, and continues to be taught at school age where literacy instruction is more formal than just play.
Colour recognition activities helps children get to know the different colors and color blending and matching.
Sensory play is play that involves all the senses - taste, sound, sight, touch and smell. Sensory play is very beneficial to children. Research shows that sensory play builds nerve connections in the brain’s pathways, which lead to the child’s ability to complete more complex learning tasks. Sensory play is also very relaxing and rejuvenating to children.
