COLOR

When Noggins are attached to pencils, markers, or crayons, they turn those objects into creatures, with the tip of the writing utensil becoming 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 a pencil grip, cueing correct finger position on the writing utensils.

CUT

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.

GRASP

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.

Childhood is a time to Play, to Learn, and to Grow. It is a time to build those skills needed to succeed. Hands and fingers need to be strong. They need to grip and grasp, and hold a pencil, and use scissors. Children need to have fun. They need to be engaged and motivated.They need to pretend and create, and explore, and enjoy.

Fine motor skills are the functional ability to use the hands and fingers. Children use these skills to manipulate and explore, and use “school tools” such as scissors, markers, crayons, and pencils. Each child’s fine motor skills develop throughout childhood, and depends heavily on experience, exposure, and practice.

Each child’s fine motor skills develop throughout childhood, and depends heavily on experience, exposure, and practice.

For some children, difficulty with fine motor skills may lead to frustration. As a result, they do not get to practice skills or develop correct muscles, leading to a disruption in the development of higher skills, such as handwriting. Developing fine motor skills at a young age helps set the stage for success in school and at home.

Noggins are foam stickers that attach to a variety of objects turning them into creatures. They are playful, and motivate children to learn through play. Noggins are easily removed, repositioned, and reused. They are safe, soft, and strong. Simply stick them on your scissors, your pencil, or even your fingers, and bring Noggins to life.
