Easter celebrations are always fun! We usually will have Easter egg hunts, bunny mascots and even chocolate treats in school!
This is an easy and cute Easter Craft that your child will enjoy creating together with you. It is a great way to re-use what we can easily find at home – bottle caps and yarns!
Crafting is fun, and it also enhances the fine motor skills of your child. This is especially important as these skills are essential for pencil grip development and eye-hand coordination. It can also be used to encourage independence. One of the key principles of Montessori is to allow the children to do, see and learn for themselves. For instance, using the scissors and hole puncher. With supervision, start with the basics. Show your child how to use these tools and encourage them to do it on their own. When they are provided with items they can hold and manipulate with their small hands, the more success they will feel and the more satisfaction the child will achieve.
