2. Card Holders out of Pool Noodles
Does your child get frustrated holding cards during their favorite card games? or do you have small hands (like me) and get frustrated playing cards too when you can’t hold of them and play?

Use a pool noodle to make an easy and convenient card holder for your card games. Your children can decorate them with stickers and personalize them too.

3. Cup Race Game

Take two plastic clear cups and draw a car on one and a race track on the other with permanent marker. You then will have a fun game that not only helps with fine motor skills but is also a quiet activity your child will enjoy.
