Develop Fine Motor Skills with a Fun, Inexpensive Clothespin Game
As a preschool teacher and a homeschooling mom, I’m always on the lookout for fun, creative ways to reinforce basic concepts with my kids.
While I was teaching my 3-year-olds at school this year, I noticed that their fine motor skills were sometimes lacking, and they weren’t always sure about their shapes and colors.

I took a stroll through Hobby Lobby for some inspiration, and that night I whipped up this easy puzzle/game anyone can make at home.
This game helps little ones identify colors and shapes while also working on their fine motor skills.

The best part?
This puzzle took about 10 minutes to make and only cost $5.00! [Read more…]
