By preparing fun Halloween games you can make the holiday more memorable for children. It's also an opportunity to exercise preschoolers' motor skills. This fun skeleton game for kids will help improve their fine motor skills.
Hand Dexterity and Focus
As a parent, we seek the best for our children. We go to extensive lengths to prevent their pain and suffering. We think that one of the best ways to show our love is by doing everything for them, but that's a problem.
We educate insecure and dependent children who have not developed the skills needed to face real-life challenges. A real-life that is becoming more difficult and competitive every day. We show our love to them by allowing them to develop their skills, encouraging their independence, autonomy, and self-esteem.
That's why I love to work on these activities with children. Activities related to "real-life" using Montessori's learning method. These are designed to imagine a daily life task. Materials used must be real to help children develop skills. We must start doing these activities with them at an early age because they thirst for learning. When we encourage them to learn, they become children who can make decisions, create, and think independently.
This fun Halloween games activity looks like a simple one with no teaching. But, in fact, it is developing children's concentration. Activities such as this teach children to follow instructions and concepts as big or small, short, and long. Children will learn needed maths, develop their fine motor skills and literacy.
