I like doing some table top work with both of my girls. Celia is reading, knows numbers and quanties, and writes well. So she is easy to find table top activities.
I wanted to try Audrey with beads. Stinging them is too hard just yet and I do not have any pricey peg toys. I had a foam block and beads and chopsticks. So i stuck the chopsticks in the foam and she strung beads on the sticks. It is a great finemotor activity and we also count them and talk about the colors. I am ok with her playing with the sticks but I could glue them in place if needed.
