Get creative with materials at home to work on fine motor skills!
What age is this activity best for?
Ages 12 months and up; supervised! For smaller ones, try these fine motor activities.
Cheerios, Dry Pasta, or Pieces of Drinking Straws
Pipe Cleaner or Dry Spaghetti
The spaghetti is pretty fragile, try putting a few strands together.
If you don't have playdough, you can make your own! (Or just utilize a creative use of tape to hold up the "stick").
Building on this Activity
For older children, you can use string or yarn to lace with. Shoe strings are great because they are stiff and easier to lace!
Try dying noodles for a fun sorting/necklace making activity.
