An excellent fine motor skill for little hands and fingers is stringing. R loves to make "necklaces". I cut some colorful straws into pieces. Then, I attached some yarn to a plastic embroidery needle. You can find them anywhere you find yarn. If you don't have a needle, you can just as easily use a pipe cleaner. Such an easy, simple activity that has huge results and you just might get a lovely necklace to show off!
