Happy Friday! We are wishing you a wonderful weekend. Here are three invitations to for the last day of the week.
Large Motor Invitation: Frisbee catch in a kiddie pool
This invitation works best if you have a kiddie pool or a large, shallow storage bin. You will also need a couple of Frisbees or large lids and some balls. Put a couple of inches of water into the pool and float the lids in it. Invite your child to throw the balls and try to hit the lids (or Frisbees). This invitation is an opportunity to build motor skills like accuracy and throwing.
Art Invitation: Markers and paper
Once again we suggest offering markers and paper to your toddler as an art invitation. Markers are an opportunity to explore mark making, build fine motor skills, and for toddlers to learn a language of creative expression.
Fine Motor Invitation: Exploring stacking
As a fine motor invitation today, you might consider offering a rod (like an upright paper towel holder) and some retaining rings from canning jars, shower curtain rings, or bangles. Invite your child to explore these materials, building coordination and other motor and cognitive skills.
