Hammering With Kids / Zakucavanje eksera sa decom































Kids usually want to do everything that we (the grown-ups) do. At least my kids. So, while making the geoboard the other day, both V and baby Z were importuning me to let them hammer the nails as well. Since the wood log for the geoboard was to hard, I found this small wood board that was soft enough for little hands.

Deca obično žele da rade sve ono što rade odrasli. Bar moja deca. Tako su pre neki dan, dok sam pravila ovu geo tablu, navaljivali da im dozvolim da i oni zakucavaju eksere. Pošto je panj bio suviše tvrd, pronašla sam ovu drvenu daščicu, koja je bila dovoljno mekana za male dečje ručice.





















































We used large nails so that small hands can hold them easily, and a large but a lightweight wood hammer (that we use for meat). V didn't miss a nail. Ha!

Namerno sam dala V-u velike eksere, da bi mogao lakše da ih drži, i ovaj veliki ali lagan drveni čekić za meso - zbog velike udarne površine. Nije promašio ni jednom, i nije udario prstić ni jednom. Ha!



























After that, V was so curious to see how the pincers work, so he took out all the mails.
Nakon toga, V je želeo da proba kako rade klešta, pa je izvadio sve eksere.




























But, there is another kid oround here that always cries - 'Let me do it, too!' - so here is the same activity set up for a two-years-old girl. The same lightweight wood hammer, clay and some sticks. 

Međutim, ovde imamo i jednu malu devojčicu koja stalno traži da radi sve što radi i njen strariji brat, pa sam ovu aktivnost ovako prilagodila njoj: isti drveni lagani čekić, glina umesto drvene pločice i grančice.

I love this idea, I am hoping to introduce my class to this in the coming school year & got some hammers & nails just for this. I like the clay & twigs as a way of introducing it too. We had great fun last year with pumpkins & golf tees!!
Vera, I featured your post as my favourite from the last outdoor play link up & wondered if you would like to add this one too? Please grab the 'featured button' if you want too as well. Thanks Kierna.

clay and twigs - genius. My son would love this activity. We do it with golf tees and playdough and a hammer but your version is so much more in tune with nature

Just love the idea of using clay and twigs to practice hammering for those kids not yet ready to use a hammer and nails! Thanks for linking up to the Outdoor Play Party!

Ovo je igra mog djetinjstva, sami bismo našli čekić i čavle, sakrili se negdje (jer naravno to nama prije nije bilo dopušteno) i zakucavali, no mi nismo imali ovakve čekiće pa su prsti često stradavali, no to nas nije sprečavalo da nastavimo, mislim da su takve igre dobre i za razvijanje odgovornosti prema samom sebi (ako dobro ne paziš bole te prsti) a i kao sama priprema za život (ponekada i ako paziš ipak ćeš se udariti po prstima). Prije koju godinu je moj brat došao iz Njemačke k nama na godišnji i svojim dečkima je našao dasku, čavle i čekić i dao im da zakucavaju, dečki su bili oduševljeni, a i ja da neke stvari jednostavno u svakom vremenu funkcioniraju. Hvala što ste me sjetili i ove igre.

Love this so much that I featured it on my site. I have never seen this idea for the very young before and think it is brilliant. I am slowly collecting play ideas from everywhere. одличан
