colouring and other downloadable fun

The girls were arguing, it was raining ... what to do for some peace and quiet? - ahh haa colouring! Great for developing fine motor skills -  those small muscle movements that occur in the finger, in coordination with the eyes which are essential for writing (and eating and dressing one's self etc). It was interesting to note E has started to hold the pens in the tripod grip - I have bought triangular felt tips to help with this! but as yet doesn't colour in the lines.
