What to Do Wednesday: Jars and Lids

Materials You Will Need:
  • assortment of jars and lids
What To Do:
Your child's fine motor development will help with writing skills later. This activity lets your child practice screwing lids on and off while developing hand muscles and eye/hand coordination.

Place several empty baby food (or other) jars and lids in front of your child. Have your child practice opening and closing the jars.

Collect small unbreakable bottles and caps from empty bottles of shampoo and lotion you have used when staying in a hotel. Put the jars in a basket for your child to match.

Skills Learned:
  • Fine Motor
  • Eye Hand Coordination
  • Size and Shape Discrimination
