Another great fine motor skill. I found these little tongs and knew they would be put to good use in our house. This time we used them to transfer marbles, big and small, to a glass jar. We also tried transferring with a spoon but R didn't find that to challenging. When the marbles made it into the jar, they made a satisfying "clink". She kept coming back to this all day. Kids need those little pincher muscles for writing, so this could be considered "pre-writing"!
