Funky Fingers

Reception Willow have really enjoyed starting funky finger sessions this week. Funky fingers is a series of fun activities for children to build up their upper body strength (gross motor skills) and finger/hand strength and control (fine motor skills). There are also a number of things that you can try with your child at home, such as:


  • Completing activities whilst lying on their tummy, taking the weight through their elbows.    

  • Craft activities – cutting, scrunching, gluing and ripping paper and bending pipe cleaners.

  • Toy tools such as sawing, drilling, hammering, screws and bolts.

  • Playdough- pinching, pressing, rolling, squeezing.

  • Threading.
