It’s February-which means there is another Smarty craft out! This month’s Smarty is all about love, focusing on a child’s fine motor skills to create a heart for Valentine’s Day!
This particular Valentine’s Day craft will help your child develop their pincer grasp while ‘sewing’ together their heart! Using shoelaces and the Autism Live template, your child will get the opportunity to practice their pincer grasp, which is a precursor to learning to write!
For more information about how to develop your child’s fine motor skills at home, check out Skills for Autism, an online curriculum and assessment tool for children on the autism spectrum.
