Finger Hopscotch

  Hopscotch is a great activity for building gross motor skills, counting, and summer fun! As I thought about the game, I wondered how I could adjust it to work on fine motor skills since that is something we are always trying to improve. While my boys can kick, jump, bend, and run with ease,…

Insect and Spider Sensory Bins
