Strengthening your little one’s hands enables them to do so much more than just writing and drawing. Most everyday skills, from buttoning jackets to typing on the computer, require a lot of finger strength. Help them develop great fine motor skills with activities that spark their imagination.

Janine, I hope you’re having a great week! Funny you’re showing the pinecone painting project tonight, as I tried doing this with my toddler just last week. We used white paint to make a “snow” effect. She enjoyed it for a few minutes, but sadly (for my home decor) preferred tearing apart and investigating the pinecones 🙂 Thanks for hosting!
