Are you looking for a baby activity that can help work on your babies fine motor control? Here is a simple yet fun activity that will have your child concentrating hard.
A can spend hours posting! She seems to love the challenge and this straw posting activity kept her busy!
All you need is a container of some sort and some straws. You can use an old margarine container, a yoghurt container, or anything that is similar.
Cut out some holes on the top that are the size of your straws and close the container up.
Cut up some straws (so that some are long and some are shorter) and have your child put the straws through the hole into the container.
