Tonging (Part I)

*Overdue post - activity conducted on 24 October*

This simple activity of tonging cotton balls hones the tot's fine motor skills, in particular, learning how to control fine finger motion.

I used cotton balls at first as I didn't have anything else that was suitable. The next post will show another tonging activity with different coloured pompoms. :)

What you need for the activity:
  1. a pair of small tongs
  2. two containers
  3. cotton balls (about 10)
  4. an inquisitive tot :)

The setup:

Tot at work:

After she tonged all the balls, she proceeded to pour all back into the first container

Ta-da! :) Multiple balls!
