Explore the wonder of writing

through creative projects pin punching and stringing


PIN PUNCHING

HOW TO DO PIN PUNCHING:

Take a piece of paper and trace any letter, number or shape on it. Use a cork sheet below the paper and let the child punch tiny holes very close to one another along the lines on the paper. The punches should be so close that the holes cut the paper and the shape comes out of the paper easily without the need to pull the shape out of the paper.

Pin punching activity primarily helps to develop pincer grip and hand eye coordination but at a later stage it helps in staying focused and attention to details. Children who face challenges in w
riting curvy numbers like 8, 6, 9 etc. or similar looking letters like E, F, V, W, M, N, Z could be given this activity for extra practice.
