Montessori Practical Life – Perforate (穿孔)

This is an activity from Montessori Practical Life area and it is very easy to prepare. The activity mainly help to refine the children fine motor skill and eye-hand co-ordination, it also helps the children to extend their attention span indirectly.


雖然這個活動有針好像比較危險,但我上下午班共有50多位小朋友,我至少跟30位小朋友一起做這個活動(已經做過好幾次,即合共100多次,但touch wood未有小朋友被針弄傷),只要在活動前好嚴肅地跟孩子說要小心使用,他們是可以做到,一定要相信他們的能力。而且,這個活動大概需時20分鐘,可以培養他們的集中力^^

What you need?

  • cork board (from IKEA)
  • pins (staionary)
  • picutre with dots around (download from internet)

How to work with the child?

It is very important to remind the children that the needle of the pin is very sharp so we have to be very careful when we work with it because we don’t want to hurt ourself or friends.

Have the child to use his first three fingers to hold the pin then put into the dot perpendicularly one by one. When he finished have the child to put the pin out.

It is better to wait until your child reach 3 years old or above and it is amazing to see the child can concentrate on his work over 20 minutes.

Remark: adult supervision is highly recommended for children!
