Muddy Fingers (Fine Motor Scheme of Work)

Muddy Fingers (Fine Motor Scheme of Work)

Muddy Fingers (Fine Motor Scheme of Work) can be done inside or out but does use natural resources. Every half term focuses on a new natural material and will encourage the children to keep busy while exercising their hands. 

This is a five minute a day Muddy Fingers programme, using only natural items. It is the perfect blend of physical education and knowledge and understanding of the world.  Nature-based learning at its best!

Play has undoubtedly changed since we were kids. When we were younger, we played outside more and with hands-on, open-ended toys and involved others. With this change in play hand dexterity has become a concern, and children are not exercising their hands like they used, which is essential for reading and writing.
