Pebbles, beads, seeds and similar such small things foster precision and control while using the fingers. One can organise many play activities using these play materials.
- Give an assortment of pebbles, beads and seeds to your child and ask her to separate them into different groups. You can also ask her to group them according to their colours or shapes. This activity develops control of the finer muscles.
- Draw some shapes or outlines of simple objects on the floor and ask your child to outline the shape with pebbles, leaves, seeds, beads, marbles, bottle caps or any other such material.
