    HI! I linked up two activities, but tried to link them up on my Ipad and it didn’t work correctly. The pictures aren’t appearing. Is there a way to delete them and add again? Sorry for the hassle. Thanks!

    Thanks so much for featuring our Fine Motor Practice with Rocks! My son just loves playing with any type of rock, stone, or pebble that he finds!

    All very good ideas. The important thing seems to be that there is purpose to the task. If the child feels that they are doing something for a reason they will complete the process. For this reason I always found threading boards were a good way of improving Fine Motor skills within my kids, you can even make your own with a drill and some time.
