Fine Motor Practice
Young kids love musical chairs. Part of it is the mad dash to claim the last seat in the room, but part of it is the excitement of the music, and the scramble that ensues when it turns on and off. Take some of that spirit and incorporate it into an indoor obstacle course of sorts. You’ll set up 8 stations across your living room, invite a bunch of your child’s friends, and get the music cued and ready to go. Underneath the fun, each of the stations helps kids fine-tune their motor skills, which will help strengthen their hands for writing.
