Bead Towers

Zayit is showing a ton of interest in learning to write these days.  He still has a lot of practicing to do and needs to gain some better fine motor muscle control.  He is doing phenomenally well and can write a somewhat legible first name!

Here is one of the recent fine motor activities we have done.  It was so simple yet he loved it.  I kept the setup on the table for a couple of days and he would play with it during his meals.  He eventually started moving the toothpicks around too.  What you need: toothpicks, foam tray from meat packaging and beads.

Not only did this help with fine motor, but colors and counting were reinforced as well.
