Rainbow Fruit Loop Towers
You will need uncooked spaghetti noodles, fruit loops
and play dough.
Use the play dough as a base for your noodle then
have fun creating color patterns by sliding the fruit
loops onto the noodle!
Here are a few fun fine motor skill & sensory activities
using items you have around the house!
Make a Cereal Bracelet
You will need twine, cereal with holes (Cheerios, Fruit
loops, etc) and tape.
Cut a pice of twine approximately 6" for a bracelet or
12" for a necklace. Tie one end of twine into a knot
large enough to stop cereal from falling off. On the
other end of twine, wrap the tape tightly at the end to
create a child safe threading needle.
Have fun creating patterns with the different cereals
and enjoy as a snack when you are done!

from DSACC board & staff, will be responsible for selecting
the models being honored and pairing those models with an
