Pre – Writing Skills – Tweezers Fun

Tweezers and Paint Tray.

Now here’s a fun activity that uses materials readily available in our house.

Take a clean paint tray or ice cube tray, a pair of tweezers, buttons, pompoms colored cotton balls or macaroni pasta.

Since we only have uncooked and uncolored pasta. I just ask Angelo to try to transfer the small pasta using tweezers.
However, for more challenging task, you can ask your toddler to sort items into the tray slots by color, size, or quantity.

The goal of this activity is to teach the toddler to hold the tweezers using the proper pincer grip (thumb on one side, and the pointer and middle fingers on the other).
