Motor Skills Monday- Elastic Bands
“Motor Skill Monday”! This week get your kids to practice their fine motor skills with some elastic hair bands and a cylindrical object. Many mums have used kitchen rolls and pool noodles but I had my trusty Camelbak bottle lying around which worked well too. Grasping the band and then holding onto it helps kids with their pincer grasp and manual dexterity. It also helps to strengthen their fingers, hand, wrist and arm. As a plus point it works on their bilateral coordination (using 2 hands together)! I preferred using these Hair bands as opposed to the thinner elastic ones so as to avoid any snapping accidents. Try this activity out Mums!
