toothpick fine motor skills activity

We’ve continued doing montessori activities but I have totally been slacking on taking pictures of them.  This one we did in early May and it’s a fine motor skill activity.

What you need:

  • toothpicks (or pipe cleaners might be easier to start with)
  • a parmesan sprinkle jar or an empty spice container (with holes in the lid)

I demonstrated putting the first toothpick through a hole and then let Emmet get to work.  He nailed it!  Look at that face all focused.  This boy was doing WORK!  I gave him five toothpicks and once they were all in I opened the jar and let him do it all over again.  He did this several times before being ready to move on.

Soon he was all, “Oh I can do this one-handed mom.  No biggie.”
