making the most of........













So Steve made something or other out of wood and had some very small left overs. They were saved in one of our boxes until i had a bright idea. There is a Waldorf Steiner saying " nimble fingers make nimble minds" this has always stuck with me. I wanted to encourage barney and Florence to use their fingers in detailed play. Steve drilled a hole through all the little bits of wood and i found some copper wire. It makes the perfect toy. Barney loves to carefully thread the wire through the holes. I also had some curtain rings hanging about that Florence can thread ribbon through. I love to see free things used for creative play. Barney is also getting to grips with scissors and is loving watching all the little bits float to the floor. hours of fun!!!! well at least five minutes anyway.....
