Pincher and Fine Motor Skills Practice is a do it yourself activity designed for people with fine motor disabilities and autism to create "birds" and "worms" to play with.
Step One: Gather materials.
- an egg tray
- pipe cleaners
- pom poms
- googly eyes
- small bits of foam or felt for the beaks
- glue gun
Step Two: Heat up the glue gun and make 3 dots on a pom pom.
Step Three: Use a pair of tweezers to position the eyes and beak in place.
Step Four: Repeat until you have a few baby birds.
Step Five: For the mother bird, use a wooden peg, add a pair of googly eyes and a feather.
Step Six: Next, the child makes the worms. They twirl the pipe cleaners around their finger to get a spiral and cut it up the middle to leave neat round worms.
Step Seven: Use the pegs (aka mommy bird) to pick up the pipe cleaners (worms) and feed them to the chicks in the nest.
