This fun activity works on the small muscles of the hand and promotes pincer grasp.
Provide the child with different size beads and encourage him to use only his thumb and index finger to pick up one bead at a time.
The child strings the beads using his dominant hand to manipulate the lace and his non-dominant hand to hold the bead.
You want to make sure the child does not stabilize his arms on the table or push his elbows into the sides of his body for stabilization.
Remember that stabilization should occur at the shoulders and make sure the elbows are a couple of inches away from the trunk.
