I chose the nice wooden pins which are more appealing to the children than the large plastic ones.
- small wooden clothespins
- a box
The objective of this exercise is to pin the clothespins around the edges of the box.
When a child gets enough practice with pinning the clothespins around the box, he can try pinning some small clothes to a cloth line.
- a string suspended between two rods (I used a thingy for hanging bananas :-) )
- small pieces of material (I cut some colorful felt into the shape of T-shirt, pants, shorts and skirt)
- small clothespins in a container
Next exercise is combining Practical Life work with Math exercise.
- paper bowls with numbers (0-9) written on the inside and corresponding number of dots on the bottom
- 45 clothespins
1 pin to the bowl with a number 1 in it.
2 pins to the bowl with a number 2 in it.
and so on ...
You may want to introduce the zero to the child - zero pins pinned to the bowl with a 0 on it.
Don't forget that your Little One can also help you hang the laundry :-)
