Tying Activity Bring the tying activity to the work area and invite the child to observe while you demonstrate the skill of tying. Indicate the bow and how the strings are shaped. Untie the bow by pulling one string. Begin to tie the bow while verbally describing how to tie. There are many methods to tying, so you may want to experiment with different methods to determine which works best for the child.
This activity can be presented in several lessons with the goal of having the child tie independently. Return supplies to the shelf when finished with the activity. The goal of this activity is to develop coordination, concentration, and independence. This activity facilitates in learning to dress and undress oneself.
