I made a dangling bead bracelet this morning. It was my first time working with chain and wire wrapping but I think it turned out pretty good. Sometimes you need to take a break from the day to day routines and do something fun just for you!!
I wanted to re-share three of our favorite shamrock themed fine motor activities from last year in case you missed them. We made shamrock playdough with giant gold glitter and the children cut shamrock shapes out of it with cookie cutters.
We also used the playdough for a roll and cover game which was a lot of fun. For a simple but cute craft project we glued sequins onto cardstock shamrocks. You can see the individual activities by clicking the link below each picture.
These hands-on activities provide a great way for children to develop their fine motor skills and I try to provide many opportunities throughout the day for fine motor play.
The free membership printable this week is pot-o-gold number tracing which is great for number recognition as well as fine motor skill development. I printed all the patterns on cardstock paper ... cut them out and laminated them. I then set them out with various colors of washable markers.
In this activity children pick a card and and trace the number with their finger first and then with a marker. You can grab the patterns for free until Sunday March 6th ... after that they will only be available in the member's section which is also where the pot-o-gold letter tracing is located.
