DIY EASY Fine Motor Games for Toddlers

This has been my ongoing project with my son for past two weeks.  He developed his new fascinations for clips, clothes pins, and magnet clips.

He pinches  his clothes, his sister, his toys, furniture and the list goes on… After I got over my frustration, I realized this is a great opportunity to develop his hand strength for printing  practice and he can get ready for his study skills.

These are few  activities  I found on the web.

Use Clips As Base for Picture People
