Pre handwriting skills development

After being inspired by this blog

http://abcdoes.typepad.com/abc-does-a-blog/mark-making/

We decided to revisit some of the activities we have tried in the past. This activity allows the shoulder to rotate and the elbow to flex. These are movements required to develop skills used for handwriting. Allowing children time to practise these gross motor skills increases their dexterity and strength, and will allow them to have absolute control of their movements.

It is also loads of fun!
