There are some seemingly inconspicuous materials in life that are thrown away after being used. But these materials are very good handmade materials for children. Create and explore for the objects in children’s lives. Through exploration, you can feel more different ways of playing, and it can also help children build up the desire to explore.
Today, I will introduce you to the straws, which are common materials in our lives. Let’s take a look at the brainstorming ways to play with straws!
For young babies, simple straw games not only kill time, but also exercise their fine hand movements and even concentration.
Preparation materials: appropriate amount of straws, a paper box/paper tube, pens and scissors
Production steps: first use a pen to draw an appropriate amount of small circles on the paper box, then use scissors (operated by mom and dad, baby don’t touch them), and then cut the straw short. You are ready to play.
In addition to the basic carton, we also have a higher level of paper tube gameplay. In the production steps, the two are similar, and the paper tube is also perforated before playing the intubation.
But the difference is that during production, mothers must pass an even number of small holes through the paper tube, so that the baby can pass through the two small holes completely to “cut off” the paper tube. Although the difficulty of piercing has increased, it can promote the development of fine movements of the baby’s hands.
