Suction Pad Activities (fine motor skills)

I have seen this idea of using an eye dropper on suction pads many times on Montessori Blogs and learning sites, and have been wanting to try it out with Bubble for ages. She finds fine motor activities really challenging so I thought it would be a great exercise, but decided to try using marbles first to get her used to the idea before trying out the eye dropper. It was pretty tricky for her but she got better and better as she went along, and most importantly she enjoyed it. We'll be practicing this one for weeks to come I think!
