Worms and Minnows!

23 Aug

Today’s fine motor Friday is dedicated to an activity we did at handwriting camp! In order for kids to learn good handwriting habits, handwriting has to be fun. How do you make handwriting fun, you ask? You add some dirt, worms, and minnows! Making an obstacle, have the kids reach in, grab a worm or minnow, run to another bucket, and drop it in… No dropping in between allowed! You will hear squeals, screams, and giggles as the slimy and squirmy critters wiggle in their hands! If they are unwilling or do not want to touch the critters, you can provide a net so they can still participate! Once they get to the drop bucket, have them write a descriptive word on the sidewalk with chalk! You can provide some examples or help with spelling as needed! Talk about fun!
