This is a very quick and easy toddler activity to put together and all for free! All you need is an empty tissue box and something to post. Most of us have something lying around that will do; pegs, long Duplo blocks, cutlery, old credit cards, dominoes, popsticks or whatever you can find.
Make sure that the material does not pose a choking hazard, demonstrate what to do and let them at it! For the younger child, simply make the posting hole larger. An older toddler will enjoy the challenge of having to place the item in exactly the right position to get it in.
- posting given object (in this case dominoes) through a slot in the top of a tissue box.
- practical life – posting
- fine motor development; hand-eye coordination
- concentration and focussing skills
EQUIPMENT & MATERIALS:
- tissue box
- dominoes or alternative material to post (pegs, long Duplo blocks, cutlery, old credit cards, popsticks etc.)
