Pincer Grasp Craft

 You can create any shape you want from colorful plastic containers to make this fine motor activity - in this case I cut an apple shape. But try a white ghost from a milk bottle or an evergreen tree from a green dishwasher soap bottle.  Use a heavy duty hole puncher to punch out the little colorful circles. Press the plastic shape onto contact paper so that when the circles are pushed in they stick into place. Some children will be able to trace the shape onto the contact paper and perhaps cut the paper.  Young children can work on their pincer grasp by pushing the small plastic circles inside the holes.
