Stacking Cheerios

This week our learning focus was

A great fine motor activity.  All you need is some playdough, a piece of raw spaghetti and some Cheerios.  Mould the playdough into a ball and then push it onto the table.  Then stick the piece of spaghetti into the playdough and allow your child to place the Cheerios onto the spaghetti.  This provides great small motor practice for all ages.
