One of Jonah’s favorite things to do is practice using a hammer…preschool style. If we’re working in the basement, he often asks for this activity to work alongside of us. This is a trick I learned while I was in college, but it’s probably all over Pinterest already. I’m sharing it anyway for the two of you out there that haven’t seen it yet.
Preschool Hammer Practice
- Recycled piece of Styrofoam
- Golf Tees
- Child’s Toy Hammer

- Pincer grasp (helps in handwriting)
- Hand-eye coordination
- Life skills
