Take learning outside with Choosy's newest activity. Children will enjoy the hands-on experience as they strengthen fine motor skills and build upon their creative abilities. Add a variety of shapes, patterns, and colors to the creative process for even more learning fun! As the pinwheel spins, add Choosy to the experience by asking questions like, " The pinwheel is spinning really fast. Can you run in place really fast? What about really slow?"
