A Paper Plate and A String?

What can you do with…a paper plate and a string?… You can use it to develop fine motor skills in your young learner!

By using their pincer grip (index finger and thumb pressed together), your child can weave a string in and out of the holes in a plate.

Why is this important?

The pincer grip is needed for activities such as handwriting, using eating utensils, zipping and unzipping clothing, lacing shoes, closing and opening a Ziploc bag, picking up small items, turning a key to open a door, using a Q-tip to clean your face, fastening and unfastening Velcro straps, eating finger foods, unscrewing bottle caps, opening lids, grabbing a tissue to clean your face, grabbing / grasping any small item, etc.
