One of my favorite things to do is pull out a game that we haven't played in a long time. I spied Pick-It in our game closet and decided to bring it out today.
This is a simple game that you can easily make at home. Five small sticks (like matchsticks) and cards that show what position into which you try to build the sticks. There are levels of play, from simply matching the pictures, to having a hand of five cards of building possibilities and having to move only one stick to make it match. It can be played by one player as well as a group.
This works on fine motor skills, perception, memory, patterning and more. It's a great way to spend some time together and build skills!
