We practiced another great motor skill activity this week. TONGS! You should see the boys scramble when I ask if they want to play tongs. We scoop up all the pom poms into the bucket, get out some regular kitchen tongs and a couple of trays and they practice over and over.
Pick up a pom pom and put it in the tray.
Once the bucket is emptied we do relays with running the pom poms around to different parts of the house. Or I’ll toss a bunch in the air and sit on one end of the living room with the bucket. Then we shout out colors and the boys use the tongs to pick up the correct color and run it to me to drop into the bucket.
