I’ve enjoyed writing a number of posts for Hands On As We Grow as a monthly contributor. Completing the activities and projects that I write for them gives me some motivation to do even more fun activities with my daughters. It also keeps the creative juices flowing as I try to come up with new ideas.
Recently, I was asked to come up with an activity that involved a “cotton ball transfer from room to room”. If you were asked to do that, what would you do?
I wasn’t quite sure what to do at first. I ended up grabbing some painter’s tape and started making designs from my kitchen to my living room.
From there, I invented an activity that ended up being great practice for color recognition (different colored clothespins), counting (cotton balls in shapes), shape recognition (how many sides), gross motor skills (walk the lines), and fine motor skills (using clothespins).
Even my cats wanted to check out the activity, although I don’t think they learned anything!
