I gave each girl a ball of play-doh and stuck a piece of uncooked linguine in it. I then filled some cups with fruit loops (we were out of cheerios and you'll see why fruit loops may be more fun). My girls think fruit loops are the biggest treats since they rarely have them, so I decided to make their day.
Have your child try and put each loop onto the piece of pasta. This requires a great deal of concentration and careful fine motor work. I was so excited that even B, who is a little weaker on the fine motor side, did this with no trouble.
When they were done they were so excited to see the tower of rainbow colors they had made. See, if you deprive your kid of fruit loops you just get a beige tower. The other plus to using fruit loops is this turned into a color identification activity as B went down her tower and named each color. A (middle name should be Not to be Outdone) did the same thing. They were so proud of themselves. I did this activity around snack time so when they were done I just had them eat the fruit loops for snack. Lazy parenting at it's best!
