Window cleaning is a favourite work of Tanks.

Merlin thought finger painting would be a great way to start his day.
I found this fun letter matching puzzle at a thrift store on the weekend.

A Chinese Checker board is a great fine motor skill activity and provides lots of opportunity to work with patterns.
