Busy Time

I learned the hard way with my oldest that some kids need lots of practice using their fine motor skills. I try to create small activities for Harley to work on while I am busy making dinner or cleaning the kitchen.  One of her favorites involves Cheerios/Fruit Loops, Spaghetti Noodles and an Egg Carton.  It may seem a little bizarre but it is much easier to string noodles than thread and it really hones in on those specific fine motor skills we are trying to further develop.

I love this. I recently tried "practicing" fine motor skills with Adelaide by having her make a spider web by weaving string through holes in a plate I cut for her. She got so tangled up. This looks much better.
