    Description

    A fine motor activity for pre-writing preparation readily prepared for home learning. This kit includes:

    • 3 Jumbo Pushpins (random colors)
    • 1 Corkboard (around 21.5cm x 16 cm)
    • 15 Pin Poking Sheets  (14 cm square)

    These jumbo push pins have wide heads and are ideal for the small hands to hold and press down to make holes. Young toddlers can start this exercise as early as 18 months old. Not only would they find the repetition of poking satisfying, they are unconciously developing concentration and independent work.

    The pinpoking sheets follow the Montessori metal inset shapes and we added the dots to guide the child to poke on. The sheets offer a small range of difficulties by different distances between dots. You can start by offering the widest distance and gradually increase to the dense dots, and eventually the child can poke the shape out by herself!

    This exercise teaches the child the three finger grasp as well as applying just the right amount of pressure to poke the hole, not too much, and not too little, hence an essential pre-writing skill to attain!

    We recommend storing the push pins in child proof containers (such as a vitamin bottle) when not in use.

    Push Pins: Total length: 45 mm| Steel length: 10.6 mm

    Safety Reminder: Adult supervision is recommended while using the tools. After use, place the push pins in a Child Proof container such as a vitamin bottle. During the activity, if the child needs to step away, show them and remind them to put away the push pin safely first.
