We absolutely love our sliding glass door. It is such a great location to do all sorts of fine motor and play activities. Recently I set up a coffee filter garden for Trevor to water. He had sooooo much fun! And using a spray bottle (plus working on that all-important vertical surface!) is great for improving strength.
On the inside of the door I drew the stem and leaves of the flowers using a green window crayon. Then on the outside of the door I taped up some coffee filters that I had dotted with our dot markers. Finally I gave him a spray bottle filled with water and let him go at it!
He had a great time “watering his garden”. After he had sprayed literally every single inch of the coffee filters, he wanted to go inside and spray away the stems too.
I hope your kids enjoy this activity as much as Trevor did!
