We have been making some amazing fine motor progress recently, so I have to change out some of Adeline's toys. Today I thought I would share with you some of the new items we are using.
Pop Beads-- I found these pop bugs awhile back at Target.
Adeline is 3 and she is starting to move from the peg puzzles to these great Melissa and Doug puzzles. They are nice chunky puzzles with about 6 pieces. Adeline loves these. She does require assistance with these.
Adeline has pretty much mastered this peg board, and we are moving on to the next board. This first board is easier because the peg just sets into the hole. The nest board requires some pressure to press the peg in. We are working on adding that pressure to get the peg completely in.
Adeline is doing great with vertical lines, so we are working on horizontal lines. We use this easel while I do hand over hand with her to practice horizontal lines.
Another fine motor activity that we are enjoying is this hinged magnetic toy by Melissa and Doug. This toy requires a lot of fine motor to open the doors and pull the little magnetic animal out.
