Monster Eyes & Tweezers!
Here's the easiest set up fine motor skills activity with a Halloween theme ever! Ok well maybe not ever but really cool anyway!
What you need:
googly eyes (smaller=harder, bigger=easier), baking pan (dollar store), tweezers, play dough (fresh or store bought, whatever you have), a bottle with small opening. I used the green play dough from our Making Monsters Play Dough Post (here).
Quick set up:
Push the play dough into the pan. Have your child help if you like! Next push the eyes in everywhere. Bury them, stick em in half way, flat, however you like. Also good fine motor skills work for your child!
How to play:
Take you tweezers and model the first one if your child is unsure how to hold them. Have them deposit each eye into the bottle without dropping it! When you are done, feel free to play around with the eyes and dough. Bring out play dough tools and other things to create a nice bit of free play!
Roll 5-10 balls out of the play dough. Call out a number and have your child put that many eyes on the monster. When you are done put them in numerical order!
