Lacing with Watermelon Pasta

Fruits (the watermelon, specifically) are a colorful addition to anyone’s palate. Because we are always striving to improve our fine motor and color recognition skills, the first few activities were devoted to these themes. Using red and green pasta, flower foam, blunted skewers, and our thinking minds, we practiced our lacing skills! Upon introducing this activity, your little one was encouraged to identify the various colors in their environment, applying their focus to red and green items specifically. Some suggested items included Christmas trees, apples, cherries, strawberries, grass, and many more! Your little one was then encouraged to place the skewers into the flower foam, and start sliding their pasta onto them! This activity not only targeted hand eye coordination, but accessed their ability to reason and perceive relationships between different objects.ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage
