Fine Motor Skills
In the Pika Room we haven't had much practice with scissors yet! You can let your child practice cutting on paper or you can draw some lines on paper to help guide them where to cut. Don't be surprised if they just want to cut random spots!
Dylan is using water colors to paint in this picture. Having your child practice using a paint brush can be a wonderful way to work on those fine motor skills!
Improving with what we have! Holden is working on using his fine motor skills. His mom didn't have pipe cleaners, but cut up some straws to thread on some chopsticks! We love the creativity when we don't have all the resources at our disposal.
Pom painting can count as a two in one! Your child can work on holding the clothes pin for fine motor skills and this project also doubles as an arts and crafts for the day!

In the Pika Classroom we love to put Cheerios on pipe cleaners! We also LOVE to eat our Cheerios either on the cleaner or off the cleaner ;)
