Stegasaurus Laundry Pin Activity
This was a 10 second project to put together to help with fine motor skills and more specifically with finger strength. Little boys, in particular, can have a hard time developing the finger strength necessary for writing, not to mention clear writing. This could be done just as easily with a porcupine as a dinosaur. Honestly, maybe even better? The pins are supposed to represent spikes but they look more like quills.
I cut the dino out of thick construction paper, but in hindsight, cardboard would have been better. Because the construction paper kept bending under the weight of the pins, Zeke could only pin them on if I was holding the dino for him, which was frustrating for him.
