This is a fun 🇺🇸4th of July inspired DIY Golf Tees Hammering practical life activity for your child to exercise fine as well as gross-motor control.
What you will need for this Patriot Hammering Montessori Activity
different types of balls to balance on a golf tee,
and a tray to define the activity.
A child cautiously hammers golf tees into a foam-block, being vigilant not to hit a finger, and then carefully places different textured balls on the top of a golf tee, trying to balance each ball.
Golf tees need to be hammered straight in order for the child to be able to balance a ball on it.
This activity is a great way to develop dexterity (fine-motor skill) as well as hand-eye coordination, and most importantly, it is fun! Hammering also develops gross motor control and teaches a child a valuable practical life skill!
