This fun and festive Christmas Tree recycled craft learning activity using squeeze pouch-caps, and pom poms is awesome for developing fine motor skills and color sorting and recognition in toddlers, preschoolers, and kindergartners. Besides, since you will be using recycled squeeze pouch caps, this activity is budget and environment-friendly. Most importantly, little hands will be developing hand-eye coordination and strengthening small muscles of the hands while decorating a Christmas tree using tweezers and pom poms!

Fine Motor Control | Tools

Tongs or jumbo tweezers are excellent tools to strengthen the small muscles of the little hands, thus promoting fine motor development. Children will need sufficiently developed small muscles of the hands to hold a pen or pencil late. Thus, these types of transferring activities are great as rudimental tools for promoting a pincer grasp. If your toddler under the age of three is having difficulty using tools, offer them to use their fingers, which is also an amazing way to promote the pincer grip, the action of closing the thumb and index finger together in order to hold an object. 

When children practice small muscle hand control by tonging, pinching, transferring, threading, etc., they develop the strength, dexterity, and control needed to manipulate many everyday items such as a pencil, spoon, buttons, scissors, zippers, and more.
