Learning through play – Fine Motor Skills with Toothpick 

Loads of fun with just a few simple things and very little preparation.  For this invitation to play, I gave toothpick and empty clear plastic container.  

I gave him the empty container and a small paper plate filled with toothpicks. I showed him how to pick up one toothpick at a time and drop it into the container. 

 When it was his turn, he picked up several toothpicks at a time and then ended up dropping them.  

He learned that it worked much better to only pick up one at a time. He was very engaged in this task and thorougly enjoyed it. 👍
