We’re a little late with #tuffspottuesday this time around! we’ve been super busy and i didn’t want to overwhelm Little Bee with too many Halloween activities in the run up to the ‘big’ day.
I found this tuff spot idea when browsing Pinterest a few weeks ago. I saw it and thought it would be a fab activity for Little Bee to help promote his fine motor skills. However i completely forgot about it until the morning of Halloween! Luckily i had bits and bobs lying around that i could use and it was a quick activity to set up. The only issue we had was our lack of suitable tongs for Little Bee to use for ‘catching’ the spiders. After a quick rake in the utensil drawer i found him some and despite this slight hiccup he seemed to enjoy the activity anyway, in-fact he probably preferred to use Mummy’s real ones anyway.
What you’ll need:
- tuff spot
- spooky items to ‘catch’
This activity was easy to set up took around 15 minutes to get organised.
Although this is quite a Halloween themed activity i am planning to do it again once i get child tongs for Little Bee to use.
I was thinking of using different props doing it along with the story, ‘the very busy spider’ by Eric Carle. But that’s something to think about another day.
