Materials: Cereal. Optional: glue, paper, tweezers.
Spread out cereal on a table and make a picture with it!
Model for your child how to use a pincer grasp (first finger and thumb) to pick up cereal pieces and place them where you want them for your picture.
Try making a circle, a smiley face, or even a tower. Encourage your child to keep using a pincer grasp to pick up the cereal pieces.
MAKE IT EASIER:
Practice using a pincer grasp to eat cereal or other finger foods at mealtime.
EXTEND THE LEARNING:
For older children, try using tweezers to pick up cereal pieces. They can use glue to make cereal art on paper, too!
