This activity is designed to practice opening and closing tools like scissors by playing an easy to setup game with grading options.
Place two buckets in opposite sides of the room.
Fill one bucket with objects (Lego pieces, beads, plastic eggs, marbles, or anything that the child can pick up using tongs).
Have the child use the tongs to pick up an object from one bucket, run across the room, and drop it in the other bucket.
Place the objects in container or bucket full of sand or water.
Create an obstacle course for the child to go through.
