VALENTINES + FINE-MOTOR SKILLS =👍🏼👍🏼 . Hole punching is a great way to strengthen hand muscles in a fun way! Threading string through the holes is a way to step it up a notch 💪🏽 . Pro-tip… Curtesy of the janitor at the first school I taught at: Only buy hole punches that have a catch- that way all the little hole punches don’t end up in all the nooks and crannies of your classroom 💩 . When you clean the catches out you can keep them in a container for special art projects ❄️🌨✨ . #finemotorskills #valentinesday #kindergarten #preschool #sonoma #sonomacounty #sonomatutor #valleyofthemoonlearning #teachersfollowteachers #earlychildhoodeducation #sonomabusiness #valentinecraftsforkids
