You may think that swinging is not an activity that can strengthen your fine-motor skills. However, my parents found a way to help me practice my fine-motor skills while I am swinging. Do you know the bark that covers the ground in some play yards? Well, my parents hold some wooden sticks in front of me while I am swinging. I find these sticks so interesting that I usually decide to investigate them. The pictures below show a sequence of events where mommy holds the stick that I snitch to study later.
The fate of the stick after I snitch it is not that certain. Most of them end up being thrown away, but some are too interesting, so I must observe them carefully, talk to them or even taste them. The pictures below show me practicing with other sticks or just being cute while swinging.
