Learning Resources Spike the Fine Motor Hedgehog
Spike the hedgehog helps children build up hand muscles and fine-motor skills as they replace the chunky, peg-shaped “quills” within the holes that dot the smiling hedgehog’s back. The learning doesn’t end there, Spike’s colorful quills also lend themselves well to lessons in counting, sorting and color identification skills. Children can arrange the quills by warm or cool colors, work on sequences and patterns by alternating colors, or count up the quills with the help of numbers printed on the hedgehog’s back.
Each piece is made of plastic that can be easily wiped clean, and the quills stow snugly inside the hedgehog’s body, which adds simplicity to storage too. Fine-motor hedgehog is designed for children ages 18 months and above.
