Lacing Pasta

Threading pasta is a great activity for developing your child’s fine motor skills. Threading pasta onto a string involves bilateral coordination of the child’s hands, and requires their eyes and hands to work together.  It also trains the child’s finger dexterity. This activity is especially engaging as the child needs to focus attentively on getting the string through. Rae can be engrossed in it for half hour or more! (Especially great when I need to cook!)

Give the child lots of encouragement when she first starts trying! In no time, she will be able to accomplish a long string of pasta for you! Display it and let her feel proud! 🙂
