Fine Motor Activity of the Week: Button Snake
Editor’s Note: Thank you to our dear friend (and former PediaStaff contractor!) Gretchen Rau for recommending this activity idea! This would be cute in festive colors for the holidays, too!

Make a simple button snake to help your child strengthen his buttoning and fine motor skills.
Learning to pass a button through a button hole is no easy task for a toddler! That’s where a button snake can help! A simple homemade button snake will help your child learn to “do” buttons, and it’s a really fun fine motor activity for toddlers and preschoolers. Of all the homemade toys I’ve made for the hooligans, our button snake is one of my favourites! Let me show you how to make one for your toddler!
