Let toddlers have fun crumbling tissues this week.
Dallas, TX (PRWEB) February 11, 2014
Toddlers like to be busy. Fun fine motor skills activities and an adorable Valentines paper plate roses have been released on Kids Activities Blog. Get ready for fun afternoons together with the kids with items found around the house.
Fine motor activities are such fun for toddlers. Among the many ideas are all sorts of pipe cleaner crafts, painting activities, and pom pom art. Indoor fun activities including scooping and transferring all sorts of kitchen staples such as flour and nuts.
How about a fun game of tissue crumbling? This activity improves strength, dexterity, and exercises grasp motions. One of the simplest ways to work on young children’s fine motor skills is to string beads on pipe cleaners.
A color match activity is always fun. Kids love manipulating small beads, matching colors, and practicing their fine motor dexterity.
Supplies needed to make the paper plate flowers are red paper plates, scissors, and a black marker. Cut a “snail” into the red paper plate. It does not need to be perfect. The snail can be lumpy.
If the child has a hard time free-cutting, lightly draw the snail onto the plate for them to cut along. The pencil line is not visible when the flower is finished. Take the outside edge and begin twisting the paper into a flower. Twist the flower as tight as possible. The kids will be amazed at the adorable flower.
