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.
If you are looking more fun ways to engage your kids, I highly recommend KiwiCo. As a former teacher, I was really impressed with the quality of materials found in KiwiCo. Some moms have told me that they want to do activities like I do on Mess For Less with their kids, but they just don’t have to the time to go buy all the supplies and prepare them for the activity. KiwiCo is the perfect solution.
Every month your KiwiCo will focus on a particular theme like Colors, Dinosaurs or Gardening. KiwiCo offer a variety of projects ranging from crafts, imaginative play, science experiments and more.
