Fine Motor Work with Golf Tees
I started out just giving the kids their foam and some golf tees and showed them how they could push them into the foam. They all took this quite seriously as you can tell.
I love how hard they had to work in some cases to push the golf tee in. Those small hand muscles are really working!
The kids were doing a great job with the golf tees, so I added some golf balls. I showed them how they could balance the golf balls on the tees. This required more dexterity and skill, but the twins were able to do it. I was surprised with how long the girls played with the golf tees and balls - pushing, pulling and balancing.
We made some great memories that day with a fun and inexpensive activity for strengthening hand muscles.
