Chris Chapman, a family child care provider, posted this neat geo pumpkin on ChildCareInfo's facebook page. The kids loved playing with this in her child care. Chris mentions in her comments it's good for team work skill building, fine motor skills and hand eye coordination. They got to use it on the light table too, which enabled them to really enjoy the colors of the rubber bands!
