DIY Fine Motor Drop Containers

Turn any recycled container or box into a fine motor filled wonderland.This great homemade invitation can strengthen fine motor skills, enhance color, number, letter, shape, recognition, and provide sensory play.

What may seem like an easy developmental milestone to conquer, learning to take things in and out of containers can be quite the tasked for a baby. Typically babies naturally learn to take things out before putting them. Therefore an invitation to explore drop containers or boxes, exposes them how to learn to put different objects through play.

To make this invitation simply take recycled containers or boxes, cut different slits and shapes, provide a tinker tray of different materials such as pom poms, foam cubes, wood circles, q-tips, and craft sticks. You can guide your child on what to do by demonstrating or simply let your child freely explore.
