Follow the lines to find the end of the Finger Maze Panel on the playground. Set on a pair of recycled metal or wooden posts, the Finger Maze Panel is quite unassuming. However, it fulfills a particular set of developmental goals. The winding lines may not lead to pieces of fruit for bonuses, however, they help children learn to work on their hand and eye coordination. As they use their fine motor skills to follow the lines, they are engaging their hand and eye coordination as well. Now, to move beyond just following the lines and corridors to solving it, they are then engaging their cognitive reasoning skills. At toddler and preschool age, their reasoning skills have barely begun to develop, but even this little bit of practice can help them in the long run.
