Fill a quart-sized freezer bag (Note: A regular sandwich bag is not durable enough for this activity. Ask me how I know!) with hair gel or dish soap. Use packing take to reinforce the bag’s seal. Ta-da! A writing pad!
Have your child use the index finger of their dominant hand to practice writing letters and numbers on their new writing pad. When using the index finger as a writing tool, the shoulder does most of the work. This is a great letter activity for children who are still developing their fine motor skills.
