Is it warm outside yet? Here, we've really into the rainy season and keep getting horrible storms. I'm so excited for warmer weather, flowers blooming and getting outdoors more once the weather gets better.
Inspired by spring, I created a fun practical life and fine motor work for Y! We took some fake flowers and florist foam and decided to make a lovely flower arrangement!

What this work targets
This flower arranging activity is great for helping kids work on fine motor skills! The pincer grasp is needed in order to grab the flowers. Muscle strength is also developed as your kids push the flowers through the florist foam. Plus, this work is great for encouraging creativity!
I don't like to place age restrictions on the activities I share here. You can present something like this for your kids to encourage the pincer grasp and fine motor skills. Once you notice your child has a sensitive period for these (is interested in manipulating and picking up small objects), then this would be a great work to present to encourage these skills!
My son for whom I presented this work is three and a half years old. However, this type of work would be appropriate for a much younger child.
