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.

Manipulating the tiny LEGO in the treasure slime, pulling the pieces out, and moving the pieces around are great ways to practice fine motor skills that strengthen little hands.

Those super tiny LEGO pieces 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 on!
