I saw this over on Chasing Cheerios, and knew we had to give it a try. Remember how much we love velcro? Anyway, our velcro board has been a big hit with Elise for the past month. I can't decide which she enjoys more, pulling the objects off the board, or sticking them in her mouth afterwards! Either way, Elise is strengthening her control and coordination of movement AND stimulating her senses.
To make this activity, I attached strips of sticky back velcro to a board (It's actually a wooden plaque). Then, I stuck smaller pieces of sticky back velcro to the bottoms of some wooden objects. I found all my supplies at Michaels, and spent about $10. I always stay with Elise while she's using the velcro board because some of the objects are small. Also, Elise really likes to chew on the little pieces of velcro, so I check them frequently to make sure they're still firmly stuck in place.
Oh gosh, I was just looking at this last photo, and there's Rosie! Do you see her? What a creeper... I think she bombs 90% of the photos I take of Elise. This baby sure is lucky to get herded by a cow dog all day! :)
