I am having lost of fun planning different activities for the ‘Fine Motor Skills Activity Morning’ on the 22nd September.  There are so many interesting ways to build up the strength in our fingers and explore how objects change when we apply more or less pressure.  My son and I have been playing with all sorts of different materials and as many of the games can develop other learning skills such as counting,  colours and vocabulary it is a great way to sneak in extra learning.  Most of the activities use items that people probably already have in the house or can get for a few francs and often these activities can stimulate a young child more than the toys that we spend a fortune on!

You can find out more information about the activity morning on the workshop page here.



The dinosaur workshop is now fully booked for the 8th September.

Here is a link to the latest Smart Owls newsletter which gives details of all upcoming workshops.

The workshop is on Saturday 8th September from 9 – 11.45 and costs 50chf per child.  It is suitable for children aged 4 – 7 and will take place at McTots in Adliswil.  If you would like to register your child then either complete the application form on the workshop page and email it to me or just send an email to
