Color Clips

This was a fun activity working on fine motor skills while also focusing on color recognition and matching that we can do over and over again.

Supplies needed: construction paper, scissors, clothespins, and magic markers.

During nap time, I cut squares from construction paper and colored the ends of clothespins to match. I then modeled the activity for Mr. T before letting him loose matching the colored squares to the clothespins.

Tuck loved this activity, but he had some problems figuring out how to pinch the end of the clothespins to attach to the squares. After lots of modeling and practice, he seems to be grasping the concept better.

Just a little side note...My child does own pants, but we are potty training and he does much better when we're at home without pants on.
