Weekly Review - Fine Motor

Raccoon is 37 months
This was a very light week for us in Tot School. We spent most of our time visiting family and decorating for Christmas (pictures to come in December's Moments to Remember post). I called this week's theme "Fine Motor" since Raccoon all of a sudden decided he wanted to draw and draw and draw. It's still more scribbling that recognizable things, but afterwards he tells me what they are. Usually it's some strange combination, like "Look, Mama, it's a map and a pickle." (Sorry the pictures are dark/blurry, I took them with my iPad).

I showed him how to draw with a ruler a few weeks ago, and he decided that he wanted to do it again.
One of our dogs, Keisha, surrounded by Raccoon's latest art on our front steps. He colored 8 sheets of paper very quickly, then arranged them carefully for a "museum exhibit."
In the evenings, Raccoon likes me to cut out different things for him to use in his imaginary play. Sometimes it's aliens, stick figures, treasure, etc. This day it was "moons." He set them all up in a moon store which we played with for awhile - buying, selling, and maybe even a little stealing. Then he put them away in an envelope which he kept carrying upside down, so he got quite a bit of fine motor exercise putting them all away repeatedly. :)
That's it for our short week. Coming next - Christmas activities!
