Fine Motor Skills and Toy Kitchens

Jenna(25m) had her friend Sally(3y) over to play today and they had a lot of fun with our toy food collection and kitchen. 

I thought I would use the opportunity to work on color sorting, so I tried to introduce the idea of making “green soup”.  The girls were not interested in this idea in the least!

    

    

What they did want to do was play with tongs and cut fruit.   This was equally educational, because it worked on the fine motor skills that will eventually help them grip a pencil and write letters.  Of course, it meant that I had to sit there and re-velcro toy food for twenty minutes.  That was the one fine motor task they just couldn’t grasp.  (bad pun intended)  🙂
