Stringing cheerios onto pipe cleaners

Print Friendly

I work with a child that needs to improve her fine motor skills, but she puts everything in her mouth. She enjoys the marble run, but I am nervous about using it with her. I decided to try stringing cheerios as a good edible fine motor activity.

My client is not ready to string the cheerios onto a string, so we ar putting them on a pipe cleaner. Honey comb is a fun alternative with many holes to string through.
