Once again, I was inspired by Munchkins and Moms for today’s activity.
We are working on fine motor skills as we wrap up our play food in foil.
Rea thought this was AWESOME. She really wanted to help with Christmas wrapping so getting the opportunity to wrap on her own now was GOLD!
Even better, after she wrapped the food, she opened it (more fine motor practice, yay!) and her excitement levels when she opened the food (that she wrapped herself 2 minutes ago) were OUT. THE. ROOF. You would have thought it was Christmas again!
This activity was a major success and so easy prep wise!
