Gross motor skills, Henry has down.
He was an early walker, and always ahead of the curve for all the big milestones.
Those tedious fine motor skills though,
Henry has a little trouble with.
Henry’s not the most patient little boy,
so sneaking in some practice can sometimes be tricky.
We have found a few sneaky ways to work on his fine motor with a couple activities like threading with spaghetti noodles and making a dandelion hat. Working with what he’s into at the moment is usually the trick for us.
Some playtime buddies shared palyful activities to keep those little fingers busy too!

Above, from left to right:
- Creativity My Passion puts a healthy spin to the usual marshmallow and toothpick structures with using grapes in stead!
- Double the fine motor practice! Roll paper beads then thread them! Double the fun from Pre-school Play.
- Don’t bother with making threading object, Sandytoes and Dustyfeet repurposes toys for threading.
- Not sure if your preschooler is ready for sewing? Putti Prapancha has multiple sewing projects ideas.
