Day Nursery IU Health Center celebrates Blue Friday

colts 011The staff at the Day Nursery IU Health Early Care and Education Center used yesterday’s Blue Friday as an opportunity to reinforce skills that children need to be successful in elementary school.  Students in Ms. Lee Ann Kidwell‘s preschool classroom had an opportunity to make two items decorated in the team colors of the Indianapolis Colts.  Activities such as makign friendship bracelets and decorating pine cones help develop fine motor skills as well as teach children to follow directions, take turns and to follow and repeat patterns.

The building of fine motor skills in children will enable them to perform a variety of important functional tasks including tying shoes, zipping and unzipping, writing legibly and without significant muscle fatigue, playing games that require precise hand and finger control and drawing, painting, and coloring.

Thanks to Center Director Charity Jablonski for sharing these pictures.
