Scooping Words Activity
Big Sister grabbed the Ice Cream Scoop and started scooping the ping pong balls into the muffin tin.
She would tell me the words on the pin pong balls as she scooped. Baby Girl had to get involved in this activity when she saw the scooping fun!
Scooping and pouring (and scooping words) is a great fine motor activity for toddlers, so this was not only fun for her…it was also a great developmental activity!
For Big Sister, scooping the ping pong balls while making sure the words were showing was good for her fine motor work.
