I had Lizzy do a fine motor skills activity while I worked on some crafts in hopes she would stay occupied and I could do what I was doing. But...this activity was too easy for Lizzy and she lost interest quickly.
The activity was to have her stick pipe cleaners into the holes of the strainer. It's a good activity for fine motor skills and hand eye coordination. Lizzy got the pipe cleaners right in the holes with no problem. She's doing great.
Some of her newest accomplishments are counting to 10 and counting to 5 in Spanish with complete ease. Lizzy wants to learn the alphabet so bad she asks us to sing the song and she has a set of magnetic letters she uses to learn from that she spends a lot of time with. She's getting there...her favorite letters so far are k, o, p, g, z, in that order. She'll get it soon, she's determined.
