  1. Thats a lovely post on improving motor skills Indu. There are many online games of matching the shapes and all and with a touchpadf or laptop, it is great to use. I tried it with my grandson and he loved them.

  2. The ideas shared are quite interesting to engage children during home. However, I would like to share one thing that please let the child do the activity of fixing nuts and bolts in strict supervision of guardian. I am not discouraging this point but just want to ensure the safety of children as kids might take those stuffs in their mouth or nose and that is not safe.

  3. wow. such quick and easy ways to engage kids at home. not just 3-4 years..m sure my almost 5 yr old son would also love them and he will be engaged for sometime before i can finish off the work in these home quarrantine days.
