Our invitation activity this week has been fine motor based. The table is set with a choice of squiggles drawn on black paper. Two bowls of dragon tears, otherwise known as flat glass beads, sit to the side. This invitation is open to interpretation by the children. Some choose to use the dragon tears to “follow” the line. Others create their own designs. Either way, little finger muscles must grasp each tear and place it in the desired position.
Just another fun way to exercise some very small muscles.
