The Beginner Finger Knitting Class on Outschool is AWESOME!

Her bracelet

She took a finger knitting class today for the first time on Outschool.com.

Knitting and finger knitting are part of her Oak Meadow curriculum.

Here is an excerpt from a great article on the benefits of finger knitting for kids:

“Finger knitting is a fantastic, and addictive, activity for preschoolers. It builds dexterity and strength in those small muscles which control the hand, fingers, and thumb—all critical for later writing skills. Finger knitting also encourages eye-hand coordination, concentration, and perseverance—all equally important for children’s development. (Interestingly enough, when a child is fully engaging their small muscles, their large muscles relax and they actually can sit still!)”

It was so good, Maisie asked Ms. Cindy if she could do a weekly class. She has never done this!

This is the link to Ms. Cindy’s class on Outschool.com. She was extremely engaging, patient, and lovely with the children.

Maisie made a little bracelet today. She wants to make another with beads next.
