This week I have been focusing Luke’s activities upon improving his fine motor skills – connecting the tiny movements in the wrists, hands and fingers (and feet and toes) with the eyes and improving coordination. Ultimately these skills go hand in hand with handwriting, scissor movements, buttoning up/unbottoning clothes etc etc.
These are our top 4 favourite DIY pom pom related fine motor skills play activities.

Free tubes from brownies, yogurts etc also aid in the creation of an awesome pom pom shoot game. Cut a hole in the lid of the tub, put your tube in and tape the lid shut. Pom poms fall, collect in the tub and then, because the lid is sealed, little one has to work out how to shake all the pom poms out again. Today we discovered that cold drinks containers from coffee chain, Costa, make awesome containers for this game – there’s already a hole cut for you!
