Teach your child to use chopsticks! It will help them develop fine motor control, concentration, and it’s a great skill to have into adulthood.
Here’s how to set up a transfer activity to practice using chopsticks:
First, get two bowls. Fill one bowl with a handful of soft items like cotton balls or pompoms. The softer the item, the easier to pick up with chopsticks!
Next, show your child how to squeeze the chopsticks together to pick up a small item. Carefully transfer it to the empty bowl, then go back for more!
For younger children, consider attaching the two sticks. Here’s a great tutorial to do so with a rubber band!
