This easy Lego treasure slime is great fine motor play.
Our treasure slime is science! Our treasure slime is sensory play! Our treasure slime is for finger strengthening! Slime is a fascinating substance and it is also easy to make with our simple recipe. We have made a batch for almost every holiday and season. We have even added beach sand and made another glow in the dark. This time we used our treasure slime for finger strengthening and fine motor play. Pair it with our Lego treasure sensory dig too!
Follow the directions in our slime recipe to make a clear slime using clear Elmer’s washable school glue. Gather up your tiniest Lego pieces and crystals too. We added a couple of Lego mini figures and some accessories to make a story.
After you have mixed up your Lego treasure slime, it’s time to play!
Tiny Legos make a great Lego treasure slime hunt. We made this slime to go along with our theme for exploring the Magic Tree House book, Pirates Past Noon. We also made a Lego Sand Sensory Bin Treasure Hunt to retell the story. The science behind slime is also a great learning opportunity.
Work on finger strength, hand-eye coordination, and grasping.
Manipulating the tiny Legos in the Lego treasure slime, pulling them out, and moving them around are great ways to practice fine motor skills that strengthen little hands. Those super tiny legos are even a challenge for me to pick up! Building up finger strength with simple activities will help prepare your child for grasping a pencil later!
When you have found all the treasure, count it. Moving one piece at a time from one pile to another is also great fine motor work. Legos are an amazing toy that teach so many great things. We love playing and learning with Legos, and we always find a new play idea for them too.
Lego treasure slime is perfect playful learning!
Find fun ways to incorporate fine motor skills practice into play.
Your kids will be to busy playing to notice they are really working hard too.
