We experimented with glue and it went very well! We gave them wooden pieces to see if they could put them together. They did. The wooden pieces also come with small colored wooden squares that are great for them to use and create a pincer grasp with their fingers. We also worked on finger-painting mirrors. They also had the option to use paintbrushes, which most children ended up using as to not feel the paint with their fingers. We are beginning to notice that although they may not want to get messy, they definitely love coloring with paint.
