Masking tape mayhem!
The Babies have been having a great time developing their fine motor skills and concentration by peeling masking tape off of baking trays.
We demonstrated to the children how the tape can be pulled off, then they used their fingers and thumbs to grasp and pull the masking tape to rip it off! We found that the tape was very sticky, sticking to the baking trays, our hands and the table! The Babies were fascinated and absorbed by the activity and loved the sound of the tape as it was ripped off the tray!
