Toothpick Pincer Grasp Activity
Try using other objects to poke the tray like a dull pencil or the back of a paint brush.
This would make a nice sensory break as well that incorporates fine motor skills, proprioception and visual perceptual skills.
Want to add another element to your sculpture? Put colored straws next to the tray. The child can place the colored straws over the toothpicks to make the sculpture taller and colorful. Be careful not to knock over the toothpicks as you put the straws on - takes a lot of graded muscle control.
