6 Treasure Boxes to Add in Some Fine Motor Practice

6 Unique Treasure BoxesIf parents, teachers or therapists give children rewards when a goal is achieved here are 6 ideas to encourage fine motor practice when they reach into the “treasure” box:
  • Button Bags – sew a felt bag that has a few button closures at the top. In order for the children to get the reward they must unbutton the bag to reveal the prize.
  • Zippered Bags – hide the prizes inside pencil pouches and they have to unzip to reveal the prize
  • Lock and Key – use a lock on a treasure box. To pick a prize you have to unlock the box.
  • Unscrew the Lid – paint the inside of a jar to hide what is inside. The children have to unscrew the lids to get the reward.
  • Shoe Untying – hide the prize inside a sneaker. The child must untie the shoe to get to the prize. Then let the child pick a prize to hide back in the shoe for the next child and tie the shoe back up.
  • Envelope Cutting – hide the prize in an envelope and the child has to use scissors or a letter opener to cut the envelope open. Good one for small stickers.
