Today I am sharing a lovely quick activity that promotes fine motor skills development and dexterity.
It’s really easy to set up and no special crafty bits are required!
All you’ll need are 2 toilet rolls, scissors and a rolling pin.
- (Optional) Ask your little one to colour in/paint your empty toilet rolls. Add some glitter, sequins – whatever they desire!
- Cut the toilet rolls into 1 cm strips, then squish back into a circular shape.
- Hold your rolling pin (or any other long, thin stick type thingy ma bob you have lying around the house) and let your little one thread them on.
A dead easy activity that’s easy to set up with no real preparation needed.
You can talk about colours if you have decorated the cardboard rolls, you can count them as the hoops are placed on the pole, and if your child is a little more dexterous than mine, they can hold the rolling pin themselves and thread the hoops on.
