Today we got out some old lacing cards of my mom’s because I’ve really been wanting to work with Hunter on his small motor control. He so desperately wants to write and draw but gets frustrated because his hand control isn’t very good and things don’t turn out the way he wants.
So we’re going to be working on cutting strips, lacing cards, tracing, mazes, puzzles, anything we can get our hands on that will develop his small motor control. We’re also going to be spending a lot more time in the kitchen because I know helping cook is a great way to build a whole assortment of fine motor skills.
He really enjoyed the lacing cards, though, and good grief, as soon as he finished lacing the hammer and saw piece he started flinging them around going “bang, bang, bang”. He’s such a boy.
“When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? … Thou madest him to have dominion over the works of thy hands; thou hast put all things under his feet”
Hunter is 3 years, 6 months old
