This is a great activity that help develop those little hand muscles needed for writing. It is also great for sorting, color matching, and problem solving. I got out our shmuzzy supply and some clothes pins I picked up at Walmart (so many uses for these). I dumped them into an egg carton added the clothes pins and set it out for the kids. I sat down with them for a bit and practiced my own fine motor and hand/eye coordination with them. This kept them busy for quite awhile too!
