Clothespins are a great fine motor activity for kids and combining it with the alphabet adds a literacy twist. This is a super simple activity to set up and keeps the kids busy, which all parents need!
I tied a string between two chairs in the living room and handed Kiddo a set of homemade alphabet letters (just a bit of construction paper and a marker is all you need). He practiced his pincer grip by hanging up the alphabet in order (sort of). It was a bit of a challenge for him sometimes but we worked together and he found it great fun. He especially liked removing everything from the string!!!
It was super quick entertainment and just the kind of indoor activity we needed to distract us on a cold afternoon.
Maybe next time he'll hang up the laundry!
Dare to dream.
