Fine motor and coordination skills are very important to learn and there are many ways to do it.
Pair a muffin tray with tongs and pom poms and you have a fun way to build up the following skills:
- Attention span
- Colour awareness/matching
- Eye tracking
- Decision making
- And more
Resources you will need:
- Muffin tray (mini one used here)
- A range of pom poms (cotton wool balls work too)
- Tongs (picture includes a small pair of tongs from Kmart, a pair of tea tongs, pegs)
Encourage your child to try all the different items you have to offer and if they use their hands, don’t discourage them. It’s all in fun and they’ll get there.
