One of our good friends gave us a set of large beads and a rope for Little Man to work on his fine motor skills. He loves for us to hold the rope and put the beads on. This activity is a scaled down version of lacing the beads. I gave Little Man and his friend some Apple Jacks, tied one end of a piece of yarn so the Apple Jacks wouldn't fall off, and put tape on the other end to make it easier to put the Apple Jacks on. I then helped them to lace the Apple Jacks onto the yarn. Little Man enjoyed it more when I put the Apple Jacks on and he got to take them off and eat them.
