Pound a Peg
I am always looking for good games and learning tools to pass the time. I am especially interested in making these goodies from supplies I have around the house - it's a fun little challenge for me to come up with things from objects we already have. This is a little such game that helps nurture fine motor skills. A plastic hammer we had from another toy, and little plastic pegs (you could use golf tees if you have those around), and a piece of styrofoam - you can find this in almost any box item you buy - this is left over from bookshelf packaging. There was an indentation, perfect for putting the pegs and hammer! Let your little one practice pounding the pegs into the styrofoam and taking them out again. I keep this in our Learning Closet and pull it out when I am making dinner and we need an independent floor toy.
