Games with cereals-fun development of fine motor skills and sensory


I offer material on the creation of a game set "Krupenichka" and possible options for children's games with croup. The material can be useful to kindergarten teachers and parents.

Games with loose materials perfectly develop sensory perception of the world, fine motor skills of children's hands. It is a well-known fact that the development of fine hand motor skills stimulates the improvement of such body systems as visual, nervous, muscular and bone. This becomes possible due to the complex interactions of all these systems when performing fine and precise movements, which is the essence of fine motor skills. In addition, any exercises on fine motor skills have a beneficial effect on mental development, and hence on the process of cognition of speech, have a calming effect, develop the imagination.

Game set "Krupenichka" is a set of 5-8 plastic containers,
filled with various kinds of cereals:
- semolina
- oatmeal
- buckwheat
- rice
- millet
for older children additionally can be included:
- barley
- corn
- barley, etc.
(plastic spoons, strainers are attached to the set)

Designed to familiarize children with different types of croup, sensory knowledge of objects and substances, for the development of fine motor skills and children's creativity.

Description of the developmental properties of the manual:

The semolina is very similar in texture to sand. Sometimes, to change tactile sensations (when you want the effect of "cool sea sand"), you can put semolina briefly in the fridge.
The tray can be simply attached to the children's table on the double-sided tape and play in the public domain. We pour out the semolina 3-4 mm on the tray and begin to create! You can pre-spread bedspread in order to minimize the cleaning process after drawing. Mankography (drawing semolina or semolina itself) will bring you a lot of positive emotions!

Variants of drawing on seething:

1. Learning letters and numbers.
On the decoy, you can artistically display not only Kalyaki-Malyaki, but also letters and numbers. This occupation is very exciting and long. You can do this with your finger, or you can with the help of a tube from a cocktail or a ruler.

2. "Search for treasure" and drawing grain in semolina.
You can hide in the semolina a little colored rice, and let the child find colored grains, you can draw on the semolina with the help of this rice patterns. Manhography - an entertaining lesson.

3. Simulator for the development of speech.
With the help of tubes for a cocktail, you can blow on the semolina to find under the semolina a sticker with a pattern (which your mother must first glue and bury)! The child is delighted with the find, the mother is delighted with the development of speech!

4. Drawing on the decoy.
Manhography - an activity for children of any age. In addition to the usual chaotic drawing and free play for the child, you can still draw flowers, sunshine and rays, clouds and rain, a house and a small fence, etc. with your mother.
You can draw with the help of objects in mankography - cocktail tubes, tassels, glass stones, with which you can lay out the drawings on the decoy. Laying out small items contributes to the development of fine motor skills in children aged 1 to 3 years.

What cereals can play?

You can play any cereals, but still, it is better to start with semolina. It is clean, very small, and not scary if the kid tries it. It is difficult to choke; it’s impossible to stick your ears and nose as we say the jardice of the tongue. A little later, you can try the game with corn grits, and then with buckwheat, beans and rice.

Ways to play with cereals

1. Finger basin - just pour the cereal into a large bowl, on a table or a tray and drive with handles, pour it, picking it up in cams - this will allow the kid to get acquainted with the cereal.

2. "Bathe" the handles in the croup - pour some corn-type cereal into a deep container, and suggest the child to dip the handles in there, squeeze and unclench the cams, pour it from one handle to another.

3. In the same bowl, you can bury toys, fridge magnets, and other knickknacks. Suggest your child to look for them and enjoy when he succeeds.

4. To pour on grains, as though we salt something.

5. Collect cereals with your hands in a jar or a bowl, and better in molds, like our children play in the sand.

6. Draw paths, fingers folded pinch. For this, fine salt or semolina is ideal. Of course, you need to teach your baby to put fingers together.

7. Draw, running your finger over the croup.

8. Groats can be poured from one container to another. Try to work with pens, fingers, scoop, spoon, measuring cups. Somewhere from 1.5 years, and maybe earlier, your little one learns to spoon a spoon of cereal into a jar.

9. If you give a few cereals, you can compare them by touch, color, shape and size.

10. And if you mix semolina, for example, with beans, then you can play a fairy tale about Cinderella: offer the child to sort the beans, separating the "grain from the chaff." Here you can use a strainer - semolina sift through it, and the beans will remain and it can be poured into a separate bowl. .

11. In a bowl, put white and red beans and sort them by color. Not bad if there is an opportunity to offer a white and red bowl.

12. Cereals can be used for plasticine pictures and figures. It is a pleasure to press grains into plasticine.

13. You can use them in applications - sprinkle on glue.

14. Or use for its intended purpose - to cook porridge for dolls. But this is a game for the older.

15. Another exciting game. Take two kilograms of peas and fall asleep in a baby bath (for example, I look after an inflatable house for such a game). Baby will love to pour peas there, listen as he knocks on the bath, pour it with handles from the bowl to the bath and back, an infinite number of times to get out of the bath and climbs back.

16. And finally - to make acupressure, stomping on peas or rump with bare feet, portraying an elephant, then a hare (someone like more).

17. Having finished the game, you can take with you the remains of cereal for a walk and feed the pigeons or lay down everything individually or mixed in a jar and put it off until the next game.

A very important note: when your baby plays with cereals - do not leave it unattended

Themed boxes with fillers.

Wheat, buckwheat, oatmeal, millet, semolina, rice (plain and colored with food dyes), peas, beans, lentils, salt (large and small), pasta (shells, coils, tubules, flowers, bows, alphabet, asterisks and others ), seeds, flour or corn starch, cornflakes, nuts, dough (salted and ordinary), snow, ice, cones, acorns, threads (long and cut into small pieces), paper napkins (torn into pieces, whole or crumpled into small balls), sand (dry and wet), patches of cloth, boiled spaghetti, grass, leaves and other s natural materials, pebbles and any small stones, gravel, akvagrunt, pieces of foam, cotton balls, cut paper, straw, soap solution, water, shaving foam, buttons, wood shavings.

Items to play with:
Small figures of animals and people, cubes, rings, balls, patches, small boxes, pebbles, toy fruits, artificial and real plants, wooden letters and numbers, shovels, spoons, rakes, pans, cups, tongs, water pear, sieve, funnel.

It is important that there are few items. The child needs a place for free play.

The goal is to give the child as many different tactile sensations as possible, to develop fingers and pens as a whole. You can give the first box to a baby who has already learned to sit. Put scraps, rattles, balls, small soft toys, a plastic cup into it. Things must be clean, large enough, different to the touch and, of course, interesting.
As a container, you can take a small plastic bowl, bowl or shallow wicker basket.

The child has stopped pulling everything in his mouth and can be given small items. Capacity size can be increased. Be sure to add items and show what to do with them. The goal of the game is to develop movement coordination and fine motor skills. Along the way, the child learns to distinguish objects by size, color, properties. For example, put rice in a box and pour a dozen cubes. Let the kid reach them with a pen. If he does it easily, suggest doing the same with a spoon or a skimmer.

You can create a specific theme in the box. For example, take plates, spoons, pet figures and feed them, put sand in a box, dig holes and plant plants, put a children's dish in a box, put different kinds of cereals, pasta and other loose stuff in the box and cook the soup.

When a child begins to imagine and invent something, he can be carried away by role-playing games, whose actions will take place in the sensory box. The child himself will be happy to fill the box with fillers, which they like more.
