Tongs - a fun work out for little hands

Nothing fancy, nothing expensive, just an old oven tray (still in use, mind you!), a few bits of felt food from our 'pizza toppings' (see Pizzas! post here ) and a little pair of tongs. Excellent for grasping practise, hand-eye coordination (visual motor integration), crossing midline, upper arm strength and control, cooking imaginary play, and a whole range of activities utilising: sorting, unpacking, counting and choosing...

And as a little side note... I love that the table which is regularly used as a 'stove top', also has an inbuilt 'oven'  - the floor!
