Tiffany's Thursday Tip

Knots, not just for scouts
After your child masters tying shoelaces, I like to introduce tying other types of knots using different types of rope. This activity is appropriate for older children, typically 9-10 years old. In addition to helping your child earn those ever-coveted scout badges, continued work on tying knots improves visual perception, hand strength and fine motor skills.

The Internet has an abundance of instructional knot sites…Check out here and here. Or if you prefer a book, I like this one.
