P could only be for Pegs Tuff Spot as part of our Tuff Spot A-Z Challenge. We love pegs. They are brilliant to use as an emergency play activity and you can create wonderful art pieces with them such as our clothespin heart and the Hungry Caterpillar.
On a recent shopping trip to Dunelm Mill I purchased a pack of twelve bird pegs. Using a permanent marker I wrote numbers on one side of the peg. I alternated between green and pink with the idea that in the future I could use them to teach Adam about odd and even numbers.

I created two washing lines using four plastic cups, four lolly sticks, two shoe laces and play dough. I followed Imagination Tree’s “Best Ever No-Cook Play Dough Recipe” and added chocolate powder to make it look like soil.
I placed our bird pegs along with coloured pegs recycled from our Rainbow Clothespin Busy Bag into a flower basket purchased from Tescos.
Adam found the number 1 bird peg straight away and pegged it onto the washing line. The pegs require a lot of pressure for little hands to open. It is a fantastic activity to strengthen fine motor skills and hand eye coordination. He loved finding the numbers in the correct order although got frustrated at not being able to put them onto the washing line quickly.
