What super skills will your students learn?

Free Play: when a child gets the opportunity to be involved in unstructured play, which in turn allows the development of a child’s imagination while exploring the world around them. In this craft the children will be given the opportunity to play freely whilst blowing bubbles.

Fine-motor Coordination: when one is able to use the smaller muscles groups mainly for object manipulation and the use of various hand grasps. This will be seen when the children thread their straws on the string making use of a pincer grasp.
