Fine Motor: Tweezing


Once a upon a time, we had a lot of sensory bins.

I was itching to make one for Tiger.
With money and time saving strategy in mind,
I recycled materials from his first sensory bin, The Dinosaur Bin.

Materials:
Miniature dinosaurs (he loves these)
Poms poms
pieces of green papers (of different materials)

Motive: Tweezing

Playing with the Ipad A LOT during the break kinda screwed up his pincer grip.
Yes, yes, guilty as charged....sigh...

So, I wasn't sure he could do this.
With a little hug and encouragement...lo and behold, my boy can tweeze!
I made it into a game by asking him to avoid touching any of the dinosaurs.

Left hand

Right hand

As part of his right/whole brain learning, I encourage him to use both hands all the time.
Kinda like Brain Gym concept at home.
During our last Ditoso class, his teacher asked if he was left handed ^.^
Tweezing pom-poms

Imaginary play with dinosaurs.
He was saying, "ROAR, bite mama!"
Yeah, well...

This was his reaction when I asked for a kiss.

I have to smother him with kisses more often!

KK is really crap. i swear i have hunted for it in every corner here but couldnt find a toy tweezer. i ended up using the metal tweezer for arts/sewing.

Hi girl,

I am glad to be back too :)

I couldn't find them anywhere too. Maybe I wasn't looking hard enough?

The blue tweezers in the pics are from the disposable sterile packs used for dressing that I ermm, took from the hospital. There are 3 tweezers in each pack, I took 1 only, not so bad right? :p They worked well enough.
