It’s Playtime! : Fine Motor Skills

it's playtime linky party

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!

Using household items that I already have like these kitchen tongs to use for picking up small objects like pom poms works those hands and fingers and intricate ways as well hand eye coordination! Plus there’s some sneaky math lessons!
