This child found a long lace and decided to string hair ties on to it. He looked in the bin and sorted out all the soft hair ties. Then slowly he stringed each one onto the shoe lace.
Some children made bracelets while others made necklaces.
"I'm making a necklace for grandma."
"I'm making one for me."
"Remember when we made necklace with fruit loops."
"I'm making a rainbow."
The children really enjoyed this experience:
-building on fine motor
-sorting the various colors
-making a keep sake
-building on patience
"Fine motor is essential to perform everyday skills."
