Clothes pins and pegs / Pinces a linge

A few months ago, I gave Juliette the task to put clothes pins on the edge of a bowl. It may seem a very simple and easy task for us to do, but actually, it requires a lot of strength and hand/eye coordination from the little ones. Back then, she was lacking muscular coordination and could not complete it.

Since I bought these clothes pegs a few days ago, easier to manipulate, yesterday I  re-introduced this activity again. I even thought that will be too easy for her to do but in fact, she really enjoyed aligning all the pegs on the edge of a can. She repeated this a few times in a row. Then, I gave her the real clothes pins and miracle! Now she’s able to fully open them, attach them and take them off!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Il y a quelques mois, j’ai donne a Juliette la tache de mettre des pinces a linge sur le bord d’un bol. Cela peut paraitre tres smple et facile comme tache a accomplir, mais en fait, cela necessite beaucoup de force et de coordination main/oeil de la part des petits. A ce moment-la, elle manquait de coordination musculaire et ne pouvait accomplir la tache.

Comme j’ai achete il y a quelques jours ces versions en bois de pinces a linge, plus faciles a manipuler, je lui ai propose hier cette tache de nouveau. J’ai pense que ca serait trop facile pour elle mais en fait, elle a vraiment adore les aligner tous sur le bord d’une boite de conserve. Elle  la faite et refaite. Puis, je lui ai donne les vraies pinces a linge de nouveau et la, miracle ! elle est maintenant capable d’ouvrir la pince completement, de l’attacher et de l’enlever !
