A new TinkerLab Creative Challenge was set: String! So put your thinking caps on and join us in the challenge!
We used yarn instead, because we have so many yarn we use for all sorts of activities. So, the one day when the cousins came over, I took out the yarn container and asked them what they want to do with it. The oldest cousin suggested making pictures, and naturally the young ones agreed.
Not only is this type of challenge good for developing creative thinking skills, problem solving is also a skill being developed because you let the child lead the activity, with not too much interference. And of course, with this craft, fine motor skills and hand eye coordination were used to execute the plan, so more skills are being developed!
