Fine Motor Friday!

13 Oct

Hi guys! Jeez it feels like it’s been so long since I’ve posted. My week has been crazy, but I’m back and I have a new idea for Friday posts: Fine Motor Friday!

Fine Motor Button

For the first one, I would like to share an idea from my awesome co-worker, yes…again! She needs to start her own blog!

Supplies: 1 pumpkin, lots of thumb tacks!

This is a fantastic idea and very appropriate for the fall! I absolutely love this!!!! What a great way to work on fine motor skills through resistive strengthening, sequencing, precision, and safety! She could even use colored thumb tacks to create patterns, a jack-o-lantern face, etc. WAHOO for fine motor skills and YAY for pumpkins!!

    What a great idea, indeed! I assume the ice cube tray is where you put the thumb tacks to the child has to pull them out with the pincher grip. I will have to try this with my son, maybe even on a jack o lantern. The clear pins may even catch some of the candlelight and glow.

      Yes! The tray has numbers in each slot to work on sequencing too!
