Fine Motor Activity for Toddlers
Baby Girl (age 2) LOVES to paint. She will ask to paint almost every day. One day I decided to bring out something besides paper for her to cover with paint. I pulled out a small handful of different dried pastas and put them into a divided dish. In the center was our spill roof paint cup
with red paint.
Valentine’s Day Noodle Garland craft
The hearts dried and we strung them along a strand of yarn in our dining room. They make a pretty Valentine’s Day decoration!
