Fruit Building

This is a delicious activity. While this activity promotes tripod grasp and bilateral hand use, it is also a wonderful way to introduce new foods and textures to picky eaters or those children who love and enjoy fruit. Suggested fruit: cantaloupe, watermelon, mango, banana, grapes, plums, and peaches (veggies are welcome as well).

PickUp Straws Game

This activity is good for children who work on their pincer grasp or on finger separation/thumb opposition. You can ask the child to use his thumb and pointer, thumb and middle finger, thumb and ring finger, or thumb and pinkie, to pick up the straws. For this game, you can use colorful straws, pens, colored pencils, toothpicks or pipe-cleaners.
