Threading with pool noodle

Practicing fine motor skills with plastic basket
We have this great plastic basket with holes that we use for play. So with the foam sticks I demonstrated how she can put straws thought the basket. She was very determined to push stick thorough holes on both sides of the basket. It took some time until she mastered it but it was fun activity.
Fishing foam sticks
Another great fine motor activity, this time involving water. I have cut some foam sticks in about 2 inches log, placed them in to plastic container filled with water and gave he plastic scope with holes to catch the sticks. Fun, fun, fun… what else to say.
