There was hammering and pushing of golf tees into the stryofoam block. There was bilateral coordination where one hand held the stryofoam block steady whilst the other hand hammered.
Fingers were busy grasping the pom poms, balancing pom poms of different sizes as well as in-hand manipulation of golf tees and pom poms within one hand. There was some finger isolation as they touched the tops of the golf tees. There was colour sorting and matching.
There was some pretend play where the golf tees became candles for Mr 3 to blow the poms off the top after singing Happy Birthday.
What a fun activity for home, preschool or in a therapy session! The stryofoam blocks survived the first battering...we will definitely be doing this again!
Maybe you can find some keen golfers in your family too?
