PLOD - glue


Guest
 Share

Recommended Posts

A little boy (who rarely chooses to do use the 'fixing station' area) was persuaded to do a glueing activity last week. He was fascinated in the glue dripping from the glue stick - just watched this for approx 2 mins. We have though about having 'gloop' for a PLOD - any other ideas? Any novel ways of using golden syrup perhaps?! :P

paint in droppers ( the plastic pippet things ) or squeezy bottles, icing pictures ( layer of runny icing sugar spread on a piece of card, then using small syringes just drop food colouring onto it - if the consistency right it creates lovely patterns) gelli barf ( bit like jelly but you can thin it so it drops rather than sticks together) Even just watching ready made icing dropping out of the tube onto a biscuit might engage him.

i had a child who loved this experience and enjoyed all of above ideas. i also got him to sprinkle coloured sand onto it for fine motor and when he shook it all off he was fascinated with seeing the trails glue had made all coloured from sand. and when dry provides another tactile experience x
