What are Noggins?
Noggins are playful foam stickers that attach to a variety of objects turning them into creatures. For Instance, simply stick them on your scissors, your pencil, or even your fingers, and bring Noggins to life! Noggins help foster your child’s imagination and creativity as well as help develop lifelong motor and coordination skills.
When Noggins are attached to pencils, markers, or crayons, they turn those objects into creatures. The tip of the writing utensil becomes the nose. This allows the child to pretend the Noggin is smelling flowers or sniffing through a maze; rather than merely tracing or drawing. The Noggin also acts as a pencil grip. Thus, cueing correct finger position on the writing utensils.
When Noggins are placed on scissors, they act as a visual cue, guiding the child to orient them correctly. They turn the scissors into a creature, with the bottom blade becoming the lower jaw. This enables the Noggin to “bite” and “chew” paper, showing the concept and technique of scissor use in a fun and playful way.
When Noggins are attached to fingers, they transform the hand into a creature. This allows practice and development of a variety of grasps in a fun and playful way. Children are able to pinch and squeeze playdough and small objects. Imagining that the creature is eating, while their own pincer grasp and lateral pinch develops.
Turn objects into creatures and bring the boring to life!
