Ayla still really enjoys posting as well as filling containers so I thought i would offer her an opportunity to improve her hand eye coordination. I tidied a stick to one end of the wool to make it a little bit easier to thread the wool through, and showed began weaving a spiders web first. Ayla soon came over to have a look at what I was doing she soon had a go herself and made a beautiful web. Ayla got a little bit frustrated at points when the stick got stuck, I would ask if she wanted help and then offer my support. So not only was it a great activity for physical development but it also allowed Ayla an opportunity to manage her emotions.
