::: tong play
We did a post a while ago on a fine motor activity using tweezers.
The box which held all the goodies was a photo frame with various compartments.
At Highvale Preschool the staff extended this activity by providing small sets of metal tongs …
to pick up a colourful assortment of bits and pieces.
Their base was an old printers box that the metal letters would have been stored in …
just perfect for this activity.
We loved that the children were trusted with the use of these large solid glass jars from which they carefully removed the objects …
and place in the small compartments.
While we were watching this pair of friends were having a great time racing to see who could pick up the most bits and pieces.
While this young girl was very ordered and methodical in her selections.
What a wonderful fine motor activity.
What a simply irresistible idea!
