Garlic: the Fine Motor Bulb

I don’t know why this is the first time this dawned on me, but peeling garlic bulbs and removing the cloves is one of the best fine motor skills exercises ever!! Not to mention kids seem to love doing it, and it definitely reduces some of moms work in the kitchen… We now made this a ritual whenever we are in the kitchen whipping up fresh pesto; Freida is queen of the garlic. Try it!
