Fine Motor Skills

I got this idea from another blogger homeschool mom.  I can't remember which one now, but it's one of the blogs I have linked on the bottom right side of my blog page. :)

This is kinda like a craft, but it's a fine motor skill for them.  Just pick any page from a coloring book and have them trace the lines on a regular piece of paper.  The first time they had problems with moving it around too much, or bumping it. So the next time I solved that problem by first taping the coloring sheet to the table, and then taping the plain paper over top of it.
The top one I let Bear do this time in pencil, so it's a little harder to see but the bottom one Monkey did with crayon so that comes across easier for you to see.  

Give it a try.  They just might enjoy it, and then they are working on their steady skills, and their detail skills on seeing through the paper.

Not long ago, I was thinking about how much I used to love tracing! I would sit at the table for hours tracing coloring pages! I bet Averi will love it too :)
