Fine Motor Fun!

At 15 months, Beatrice is starting to develop some awesome fine motor skills, so we made her a little game to practice.  It was SUPER easy to put took ten minutes, tops. Here is what we did:

1) Take a piece of scrap wood and sand it smooth.  
2) Drill pencil-sized holes (we used a 9/32 inch drill bit to be very exact).  
3) Put glue in each hole and hammer an unsharpened pencil into each hole (I used pliers to remove the erasers first)
4) Find big beads, spools, empty tape rolls, canning lids...anything not chokeable with a hole in it...and show your child how to put them on the pencils.
