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.

Variations:
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
