Developing fine motor skills

Let me give you an idea for today: toothpicks in action!

This task will help your toddler in developing fine motor skills and practicing deep concentration and persistence. But above all, it looks like it's a really engaging activity. M loves it these days.

developing fine motor skills - toothpicks in action

I hardly ever see a household without an ORDNING flatware caddy from Ikea, meaning it is very likely you have one, too. Find it and get some sticks that fit into the pre-drilled holes: I used toothpicks (even left them wrapped in packaging, to prevent them from just falling through), but you may just as well use anything else that fits through the holes, such as wooden sticks or drinking straws.

I found the idea here. Despite a different look, the activity is quite similar. I like that one even better, but honestly, I got tired of forgetting to buy one of those bins while grocery shopping.  :)

  1. Všeč mi je, ker lahko sam pospravi zobotrebce, ko konča oziroma si jih vzame, ko mu zmanjka :) Bom zaplenila tašči tole, ja ja :) Šlo bi najbrž pa tudi s cedilom (ampak tole mi je bolj všeč, več ravnih površin). Uuu, pa s kosmatimi žičkami bi tudi šlo! Priporočam, da vseeno pripraviš tudi mojo varianto :-P Ne, res je lušno, še mene kdaj prime, da bi te palčke potiskala notri... Ta pokrov je res zakon (ta od Nesquika, tisti od adaptiranega mleka so za piko bolj trdi)... Tak mehek je, luknjice so ravno dovolj velike in je tako lušno, ko je treba pritiskat... Kakorkoli, za probat (jaz bom pa tole :) )

    1. Sanja,
      Hvala, vsekakor preizkusim še nescaffe škatlo (sem si jo že priskrbela) - takoj ko pridemo z morja. Do takrat pa lep pozdrav z modrega Jadrana, damjana
