Pasta, threading, game, fine motor skills


Developing fine motor skills is important for young kids and it can be fun too. I set this pasta threading challenge up for my 2 year old but my 4 year old also enjoyed joining in. We were also able to practise counting all together and some simple maths with my eldest.

Time: 10 minutes
Age: Under 5's
Level: Easy

Materials
Play Dough
Spaghetti
Penne pasta

Method
To set up the challenge, roll play dough into a ball and stick in a piece of spaghetti.



Fine motor skills, pasta, threading, preschool


Little ones are challenged to thread the pasta over the spaghetti.
It's a good way to practise counting too.
