Scraping Flour

You need:

  1. Plain or self-raising flour
  2. Scrapers- These can be bought OR made

How to make it:

  1. Use heavy duty cardboard to cut out different textured scrapers for your child to use.
  2. Spread a dusting of flour on the table for your child to use to mark make in

How it can be used to support learning:

  1. Tracking what they do/the marks that they make
  2. Knowing that their actions produce a result i.e. when they drag over the flour it leaves a mark
  3. Hand awareness- where are their hands and how do they need to be moved to create an effect?
  4. Maintaining a sustained grasp of an object
