Who would think about waterbeads & golf tees combination. Odd right! Well someone did and luckily i came across this activity on Pinterest. This is a great activity to develop fine motor skills, concentration, patience & perseverance.

We did this activity almost 2 months back. A & D pushed the golf tees into the styrofoam anywhere they wanted – went on for a while – poking it in and taking it out. This was the first time they are handling golf tees & styrofoam and so they were quite excited about it. This was a great fine motor exercise for the little fingers.
Then i helped them put the golf tees in straight lines. Gave them water beads and asked to place it on the golf tees. They both did it with so much concentration. Everytime you touch the already placed water bead, few others fell down along with it – like dominoes. They got a little frustrated but kept doing it all over. They just didn’t give up until A got 90% of the beads to stay & D one straight row.
