Learning through play – Hammering with Nails

Fine motor activities are important for strengthen hand muscles and hand-eye coordination. Both of which are needed for writing skills.  

   
This hammering activity has been on my list for a long time, and I’m so glad to finally get it together. Inigo was very engaged in this work.

  
    
 This is a really a simple activity. All you need is a toy hammer, styrofoam and we used real nails from daddy A’s toolbox.

He liked hammering, but he also enjoyed just pulling the nails.

  
   
Later on we used our scented playdough and Isabelle started to joined us.












  

When they are done with hammering they used the saw and the team work begin.



   

This activity was new to them. I find that once they see me getting into materials they want to get involved too.Keeping them focused and entertained.
