Fine Motor activity -The Straw Game

The Straw Game!! It’s a great activity that supports  fine motor  skills, hand-eye cordination, concentration levels, patience and perseverance.

Give your child a handful of straws and let them have fun pushing the straws through the holes.

Putting a straw in the hole will have the effect of making it fit. This activity also supports object permanency as a straw that is pushed through the hole is not lost but it is in the container.
