Stringing Shapes

  video

Stringing these flat plastic pieces with large holes and using thick cord teaches the stringing concepts that prepare children to string beads. The flat plastic won't roll away and its easy to grasp as you teach the child the motor planning sequence, I attached the bottom of the cord to a small bag I knit and clipped that onto the tack handle to use during the riding sessions. I like to stop on the trail especially on a beautiful sunny day like today and offer a fine-motor activity.  This girl was about 20 minutes into the session, so had a lot of great sensory input that helped her to focus and persist on a challenging task.
