Using Tongs

ages 3-6


Cotton balls, small tongs, small bowl.

Activity Detail

Set a pile of cotton balls on the table. Have your child use tongs (small ones) to pick up the cotton balls and place them in a small bowl. This activity is a wonderful way to build up the hand muscles that your child will use when he or she holds a pencil or crayon. You can also use this activity as a way to practice basic math skills -- counting, addition, and subtraction.

It is also fun to try different size tongs and different size objects. You can place the objects in a plastic ice cube tray. Great idea!
