Today L tried weaving with a styrofoam meat tray. I also cut up a round piece of cardboard to weave on but we didn't get to that one yet.
The pictures are pretty self explanatory.
He didn't spend much time on it, so I knew there wasn't a whole lot of thought behind the pattern he wanted or anything, however his fine motor skills and coordination still got a workout thats for sure. He struggled at first with holding the tray and weaving at the same time. He finally got the hang of it though. I can't wait to try this again at a different age, or perhaps just not right before lunch time when all he can think about is his peanut butter and jelly sandwich :)
