Plasticine Fidgets

One thing my kiddos this year all have in common is attention issues. So this week I introduced small clumps of plasticine that they could squeeze in one hand while working, as long as they follow a few rules:

1. It is not playdough
2. One hand only, the other on your pencil.
3. Do not wrap around other school supplies, cut with scissors, or stuff in glue caps (yes, these rules are evolving as the week passes).
4. If you are playing with it and not working at the same time, I will confiscate it.

It's a work in progress, but I know that as the novelty wears off it will work its magic on their need to fidget.

DO you provide fidgets?
