The Finn family fishing set is designed to complement the SeaWeenies Sand & Water tray. Children will have fun catching the fish which float with only the fins above the water. This is a great way to teach hand-eye coordination and is a fun way to introduce counting and subtraction.
As children manipulate water play materials, they begin to understand why and how things happen. For example, given objects which sink or float, a child will soon discover that just because something is large in size does not mean it will sink.Children also begin to understand and experiment with concepts such as more/less, same/different, many/few, empty/full, before/after, greater than/less than, and counting.
Fine motor skills involve the use of the smaller muscles in the hands, such as doing up buttons, opening lunch boxes or using pencils or scissors. Fine motor skill efficiency significantly influences the quality of the task outcome as well as the speed of task performance. Efficient fine motor skills require a number of independent skills to work together to appropriately manipulate the object or perform the task.
