Froggy

image

Activity 1:

Use the small pompoms and adaptive chopsticks to feed the frog some flies!

This works on pincer grasp which is needed to promote a good pencil grasp. Make sure your child uses his thumb and 1-2 fingers.

Activity 2:

Use the playdoh to make small balls using only the thumb and first 2 fingers. Then squish them onto the circles on the frog. This activity helps with finger isolation as well as finger strength.

Activity 3:

Use a dry erase marker (not included) to color in each circle. Make sure your child colors in a circular pattern. This type of coloring will help with finger isolation rather than whole arm/hand movements when coloring.

You can purchase this activity as a part of MissMancy’s Summer Days Kit

Note:

You can also have your child cut out the frog using scissors and cut out the mouth so it makes it more real when they feed the frog!
