Pom Pom Bee

#LearningByDearest

Directional art activities, like this one, are designed to give children practice following directions. This activity is great for refining your child’s motor skills and hand-eye coordination. Making the bee helps them practice advanced motor skills such as twisting and bending the pipe cleaners, and pasting small objects onto the bee.

LEARNING GOALS:

  • Fine motor practice
  • Listening and following instructions

AGE: 6 – 7 Years Old

INSTRUCTIONS

1

TIPS
  • Children process instruction by hearing it (auditory perception), understanding the meaning of the words (auditory comprehension), and then interpreting them into actions.
  • Instructions should be simple and given one at a time, making sure they have ample time to process it.
