Every month or so Chase gets a special package in the mail from Grandpa in Kansas....a Trains magazine. Chase loves opening his package and looking at all the pictures. His favorite magazine so far was the one where the showed the train that The Polar Express was modeled after. Here's Chase after getting a magazine a couple months ago.
At Chase's parent/teacher conference a little while ago she mentioned that he hands are a little weak. She suggested doing cutting and other activities that would help strengthen his hands. So one day when the littles were sleeping we made a collage from one of the train magazine. He only cut out about 4 pictures and taped them to the paper and it took about 45 minutes - it was a lesson in patience for me for sure!
I knew he would only stay interested in the activity since we were cutting out pictures of his favorite thing. Hopefully we can do this several more times this summer to improve his cutting skills. Big thanks grandpa for the magazines!
