Here is a fun way to incorporate fine motor, fun, and learning numbers too. Young children need many opportunities to recognize and learn their numbers. I recently took the grandkids outside for some fun water play. The boys like to use spray bottles to erase chalk on the sidewalks. So I decided to change it up a bit and make it a learning game too.
- spray bottles
- sidewalk chalk
- wooden fence or brick walls
Write the numbers 0-10 on your wooden fence. Say a number. The children find the number and spray it away. Continue calling out numbers until all of them are gone. Easy, peasy and so much fun!
FINE MOTOR FUN
Squeezing the trigger is great fine motor practice for little hands. It also requires that they use both hands at the same time. One hand is for holding and the other is for pulling the spray trigger.
