This week we started Rz sitting at the table with us while the older kids do their schoolwork. Most of the time, he`s better at sitting still than they are!
I try to have a different project or two for him to do every day so his attention stays with us. It`s easier for the big kids to pay attention when little bro isn`t running around elsewhere in the house having fun! This project was simply threading wooden beads onto pipe cleaners. I figured it would be good for his fine motor skills too.
He seemed to enjoy this project immensely, and threaded and re-threaded the beads for well over an hour before tiring of it. He calls his finished creations ``snakes`` and indeed, they look like snakes! Another day, we could even add googly eyes or color patterns onto the beads with Sharpie markers to make snakes as an art project.
