Fine motor and water play come together in this fun clothesline activity:
Now that we’re enjoying warmer temperatures, we’re getting back into some of our favourite outdoor activities! Yay!! This morning, I set up this clothesline activity in our back yard. The kids loved it! It’s such a great way to combine fine motor play and water play, and your little ones will get to practice some life skills too!
The hooligans often play with my basket of wooden clothespins. They’re excellent for developing fine motor skills, hand muscles and co-ordination. For today’s activity though, I brought out our camping clothespins. They’re bright and fun and colourful, and they’re slightly easier to squeeze open than the wooden ones.
What you’ll need for your clothesline activity:
- basin of water
- stack of facecloths
String your rope up between to trees, posts or deck rails, and you’re good to go.
