Mosaic Tiles

The Grasshoppers designed their own mosaic tiles. 

They used a pincer grip to pick up the small mosaic pieces and place them carefully on the tile. 

Practicing the pincer grip supports children with writing skills and supports the development of their hand muscles. 

Hand eye co-ordination was used to place the mosaics on the tiles. 

Children practised making patterns in deafferent shapes and patterns of colour order. 

Maintaining high levels of focus son the fine motor activity.
