This fun activity doesn’t require much explanation.
But it’s fun nonetheless.
You’ll need paper plates and tissue paper. And something to mark as a goal. We used a dining room chair and underneath it was the goal. But anything can be used – a clothes basket, table, anything that gives them something to aim for.
The object is to move the tissue paper with wind.
And to create the wind by fanning the paper plate.
Any type of movement works as long as the kids don’t touch the plate to the tissue paper (my boys tried that…)
I loved seeing all three boys doing an activity together for this!
Of course, Henry understood it a lot better and found easy ways to blow the tissue paper. He swung his arm back and forth standing up.
Louis just laughed and giggled while he moved his. Not really understand what he was doing, but joining in anyway.
George tried so, so hard. Fanning the paper plate without much success. Fanning it soooo fast and didn’t know what wasn’t working.
Finally, I mentioned that his plate needs to be behind the tissue paper and not over the top.
That did the trick!
They raced their tissue paper to the chair! Make it a challenge or a race, whatever your kids get more excited about!
