Fine motor skills describes the way we use our hands and fingers. Having four children between the ages of 3 months and 3.5 years, I note the remarkable way fine motor skills develop as children grow. Making this patty pan mobile involves two fine motor skills activities: using a paper punch and threading. It’s great for: using both hands together; hand and finger strength; shoulder and elbow stability; in hand manipulation; pincer grasp; open-shut hand action.
Materials & Equipment:
Press the punch and make holes in the patty pans.
Move patty pans around to create lots of holes in the patty pans.
Thread patty pans onto a piece of yarn to make your mobile.
N & M: 3 years, 9 months
