Directions:

This is a great fine motor skill activity that incorporates the principles of precision and balance as little ones place the marbles to balance atop the tees. This is great for toddlers who are strengthening their fine motor skills and is a little more difficult than the other activities. You can also color code this game to help your child practice their color recognition at the same time.

Directions:

Learning how to lace is great for little ones especially considering they will be tying their own shoes shortly. If you have very small children, just learning how to lace the string through the holes is enough, older children will enjoy tying the yarn after lacing it through the holes. Simply cut a rectangle from a piece of cardboard (I used a cereal box), punch side-by-side holes and let your little one lace away.
