Ribbon Pull for fine motor skills

Print Friendly

Pulling on small objects is great for working on fine motor skills, and what better small object to pull on than a ribbon. I had some tennis ball containers, and thought that the fact that they are see through would make it even more fun and motivating because you can see the ribbon moving inside the container.

Pulling on the ribbon requires strength in the pincer grasp.  To make it, I just sliced holes in the lid, and tied the two colors of ribbon together.  Then I threaded it through the holes in the lid and tied knots in the ends.
