Links are a great manipulative that can be used to create all kinds of simple learning activities for you little(s)!
Not only do the links provide fine motor skills for little hands, but they can be used in so many more ways to enhance learning opportunities and incorporate a more hands-on approach to learning!
Work on matching skills. You can use just about any printable and create duplicate copies for your little one to match up. Simply print, laminate, cut, hole punch, and let your little one get to work matching! The printables below are from the Farm Tot Book on 1+1+1=1.
Practice linking capital and lower case letters of the alphabet together!
Or, you could work on linking the letters in ABC order!
Another fun idea is to use numbered printables and link up the appropriate number of links for each! The printables below are from the Brown Bear, Brown Bear Tot Pack on 1+1+1=1.
