Laundry Basket Rescue Mission
Laundry Basket Rescue Mission: It is a simple set up and keeps little ones busy for a good chunk of time. You Need: Laundry Basket, Yarn or String, Toys. The Set Up:Take a laundry basket and fill it with toys. You can use toys of all different sizes/textures. Take the yarn or string and tie pieces of it across the basket. Do this over and over until you have a latticework of yarn over the top of the toys. (Almost like a spider web over the top.)
The Rescue: Set the basket out and have your child rescue the toys! They need to use many skills to maneuver the yarn and the toys to get them to freedom. For older children you can have them use tongs or tweezers to enhance their fine motor skills.
