Fine Motor Monster Madness
Children are sometimes afraid of monsters. At home, it’s important to acknowledge their fears and to be honest. Monsters are only pretend characters. In childcare/school, teachers can use teaching materials/props/stories/activities as tools regarding this topic. Debbie Clement from Rainbows Within Reach says, “When we name our fears we are on our way to growth. Children + Fears = Monsters. Let’s use playful monster projects as a vehicle to address fear.” Pop Over to see her RoundUp: Monster Edition.
