Candidate’s facilitation promotes children’s physical development
b) Guides the development of children’s fine and gross motor skills
Different sized/colored pom poms
ice cream scooper
empty ice cream containers
ice cream bowls
Prepare for activity by creating the ice cream sensory bin.
Fill the bin with pom poms, ice cream scooper, spoons, bowls, and clean ice cream containers.
Place the bin in an appropriate area for the child to explore. Invite them to join you in play.
This is the perfect time to introduce new vocabulary to the child, as the information is relevant to them.
Note: Please provide appropriate supervision to the children in your care when completing all activities. You will need to decide what types of activities are safe for the children in your care. Appropriate and reasonable caution should be used when providing art and sensory experiences for children. Infants and toddlers require special precaution, only use non-toxic materials, and do not allow young children to put things in their mouths that are a choking hazard.
Observe and record the child’s fine motor skills. Were they able to grasp the spoons and scoop the pom poms? You may want to take pictures of the child during the activity to document the progression of these skills.
