To go along with our Australian Bush Camping focus we set up a few activity tables designed to increase fine motor skills. We made some brown earthy playdough and then added some gum nuts, bark, twigs and leaves. We let the children explore the new playdough and it was fascinating to see what they came up with.
On another activity table we put out some Australian animal threading shapes along with some brightly coloured shoelaces. The children really enjoy it when we put out a new manipulative for them to play with. Both centres were a hive of activity.
