“By education I mean an all-round drawing out of the best in the child and man; body, mind and spirit.” — Mahatma Gandhi
Kids love open and close activity. Some of the best practical life exercises for young children are quite simple to put together. It is a fact that at this young age children are often intrigued by containers and things that fit. Open and Close activity is a really good practical life activity for refining motor skills. SAI Angan organised some activities for the Playgroup children.
We began with an activity showing them how to open and close a container and they being good imitators we asked them to do the same. While the other was a scrapbook activity. Two pictures of the umbrella were shown, one was open and while the other closed. Children were asked to identify the concept and do the collage. This activity enhanced their fine motor skills, eye-hand coordination, inter and intra-personal skills.
