the area of an elephant plate

When I set up the fine motor table, parents often ask "How does this?" or "what are they supposed to do?" I always answer, "I don't know yet, they'll show me." There is no right or wrong way to explore an invitation. By the end of the day, almost all of the pompoms were gone. I bet they are hidden in pockets, purses, or cubbies.

fine motor invitation: cutting and piggy banks

Or elephant banks in this case. Long strips of paper will often get crammed into the banks, and they usually do not fit. How can we get it to fit? Tearing? Cutting? Folding? All of the above!
