Thank you to each of you who attended my talk: Birth to Three Years: Developing Fine Motor Skills at the Early Childhood Methodist Conference in Houston this past week!!!  I heard great activity suggestions made by the teachers who attended my talk.  I want to share some of them here: Please make sure the child is supervised with these!

Painting on an easel using Nerf balls dipped in paint: great for shaping little hands

Lacing using colander

Placing coffee stirrer through the tops of spice bottles (make sure the plastic flat tops with holes are securely placed on bottles) or putting laces through the larger holes.

Cutting 24 inch by 24 inch squares from thin plastic table clothes (disposable ones at the dollar store): Use the squares as scarves for moving to music or for wadding up using both hands.  The wadded ones “magically” open up when released from the hand!  Fascinating to watch even for adults!

Did I miss any one’s suggestion?  E mail me and I will include it with your name on my next blog! If you recognize your suggestion, e-mail me and I will put your name by the suggestion!
