The aim of identifying body parts is to gain awareness about using these in a cognitive, physical and language enriching process. Our bodies are essentially our toolkit for discovery. Hands are the tool of intelligence.
Hand print art is an activity that provides fine motor skills useful for handwriting in later years. As kids use their thumbs, fingers or hands, they are exploring the movement and coordination of reaching out for the paints and printing them all on the paper .
HFS Junior Montessori engaged in a Hand printing and Marshmallow toes activity on 22nd August 2017. Children were very excited to see colour on their hands and its impression on the paper. This fun activity was an excellent way for children to be creative and artistic for their moms and dads who can preserve precious memories of their formative years in’sha’Allah.
