Fine motor activity

Pin It
Hello everyone!
Hope you are all having a great week :)
Thanksgiving is just 1 week away! Can you believe it??
I am very excited to be able to see family for the holiday, nothing beats that!

Today I've got an awesome activity for the littles.

I actually made this for my son probably a year or so ago, but with our big move 2 months ago, it got thrown away.
The other day my son asked to do this activity again, and it was great because it didn't cost me anything to make it again, I already had everything on hand! 
Yay!
I love this activity because it promotes fine motor skills, and counting.
(Just a side note, I tried to find the blog I got the idea from, but to no avail. If you are out there, sorry I can't link back to you, but thanks for the idea!)
Supplies
empty egg carton
scissors
marker
tweezers
popcorn kernels (or small beads, nuts, etc).
 To start, cut off the top of the egg carton,
 then write numbers in each spot from 1-12.
Place the popcorn kernels on a table, and using the tweezers, have your child pick up a kernel and place it in the carton. They'll put 1 kernel in the #1 spot, 2 kernels in #2, 3 in #3, etc. 
 Hope your little one enjoys!
And, have a great holiday :)
