Build a Straw - Fine Motor Building Toy

Curious Minds

$ 3.00 

This is technically a straw that you can build in several different ways, but I see it as a perfect fine motor building toy.  You get 21 straight tubes and different connectors to make cool creations.  Buy multiple sets to expand your collection.  These are fun! 

    What they are learning WHILE having fun:
    - Hand/Eye coordination and spacial recognition. - Being able to line up the tubes with the connectors.
    - Fine motor - Practicing using fine motor pincer grasp in order to manipulate the parts.  Builds hand muscles and dexterity which are essential for a proper pencil grasp.
    - Concentration. This activity utilizes several manipulatives for open-ended pretend play so it offers a great opportunity to sit and focus on a task before it is completed.
