Today Master E and Little Miss A had a go at threading some coloured pasta. This type of activity is great for fine motor skill development. Master E starts Kindy next year so I’m keen to give him lots of opportunities to improve these muscles before they want him to learn to write.
They both really enjoyed the activity but it took lots of concentration and patience. Master E got frustrated in less than 10 minutes but I left it out and he come back several times during the afternoon.
