Here is an at home Montessori tool you can create for your child(ren). This tool builds both fine motor skills and cognitive skills.
Clothes pins are a great way to strengthen the muscles in your child(ren)s hands that will later aid them in gripping and holding a pencil.
This activity also builds cognitive skills such as one-to-one correspondence, number recognition, and counting skills.
To create this tool you will need to:
- Print and cut out the number circles in English* And/Or Chinese*
- Purchase clothes pins.
- Allow your child(ren) to explore and practice opening and closing the clothes pins to attach to the number cards and utilizing one to one correspondence while counting.
*We recommend printing on cardstock paper and laminating the cards for an increase in durability.
