Here is a great activity I use in my classroom for developing fine motor skills.
I am lucky enough to have had these great little plastic tweezers donated to me, so I am putting them to good use. If you know a nice nurse, you might be able to score yourself a set, too!
I start with some little trinkets ... anything will do. These little plastic guys came in a mixed set of collage trinkets.
I toss them into a tub of rice.
You can use coloured rice if you like...
... then using our little tweezers in our little fingers, we count how many items we can remove from the rice.
Loads of fun!
