This is a simple activity using items you may have lying around the house. We have used dry spaghetti stuck into some playdough and cheerios. This is a really good simple activity for older children to help them develop their pincer grip which can then help them with pencil control and writing skills when they start school.

Wallsend Day Nursery
Wallsend Day Nursery is a childcare provider based in heart of Wallsend Town Centre, in the former Wallsend Library Building on Ferndale Avenue. We provide childcare 5 days per week and 51 weeks of the year to children aged 6 weeks to 5 years. We also offer a holiday club for older children during school holidays, and we work closely with nearby schools where children may be attending nursery part time both with ourselves and with the school. Our project is called Wallsend Day Nursery in the Community. During the project, over a period of 6 months, we will be creating helpful videos for local families, to support them both to learn and play, and interact with their children at home.
