Sugar Aunts: Fine Motor Pick Up Sticks

Fine Motor Pick Up Sticks

Talk about an easy set- up and great fine motor dexterity task...
Picking up those tooth picks from the table surface is perfect for a fine motor neat pincer grasp.  Putting them into the little holes of the container works on a tripod grasp and extended wrist.  Holding the container with the non-dominant hand is great for establishing a stabilizer hand(supporting the paper when writing).

These toothpick containers came in a two pack at Walmart, I think.  It's an inexpensive activity too ;)
Enjoy today!
