While cleaning out the pantry, I was keeping an eye out for items that we could use for learning experiences. Low and behold, I found some stale cereal which had holes in the middle. Perfect for stringing. Then I saw the box of spaghetti noodles and thought that might be fun to use those in place of yarn for stringing. So.....we took a small cup, stuffed some playdoh in the bottom of it and carefully pushed the uncooked spaghetti into it. I gave T a cup of the cereal and he got to work putting it on the pasta. He saved the straws and buttons for the last to make a "helicopter". R, again choose to eat the cereal and just string the straws and buttons. You could use any type of cereal with a hole in the middle, Cheerios, Joe's O's, whatever you find really. This was a really fun, creative fine motor skill activity!
