Make "Fingarings" with Sculpey

Cumba Siegler, Ma, OTR/L a school-based therapist in the Santa Cruz City Schools describes a clever use of Sculpey in her article Fine-Motor Fun with Fingarings.


These are not simply finger rings from Massachusetts, but rather material for a therapeutic activity. She has the kids strengthen fingers, motor plan, refine dexterity and learn cognitive concepts using them. So save your Sculpey scraps for these rings or buy a package of varied colors and start baking.
