Hanging Rubber Bands on Knobs
This activity was very easy. The goal is to put the rubberbands on the knobs and to take them off.
Little Bear did pretty good with this activity. However, he did not understand that if he pulled too hard, the rubber bands would snap back at him. When this happened, he would get very frustrated as it would snap his hand or get stuck. I would suggest using little plastic girl bracelets or some other item that would not snap back if pulled too hard until the child better understood the behavior of rubberbands.
My goals with this activity were:
* hand/eye coordination
* fine motor skills
Little Bear did ok with this activity at 2 years/3 months.
