These bamboo tongs are perfect for sensory exploration and fine motor skills. They are approximately 9 cm in length total.
Here are some of the ways that our bamboo tongs can support your child’s early learning:
Hand dominance: Determine which is the dominant hand and reinforce its more frequent use in precision task performance.
Bilateral Integration: Practice using both hands to perform tasks, not just one e.g. use the ‘doing hand’ to use the Tongs to pick up the item and the ‘helping’ hand to hold the bowl the item will go into steady).
Finger Isolation: Practice tasks that use just one or two fingers – not all the fingers at once
Hand and Finger Strength: Enhance finger strength by using the Tongs, squeezing and releasing as the child plays with this learning tool.
Positive interactions and experiences: Encourage enjoyment in activity participation instead of focusing on a ‘successful’ outcome (e.g. rewarding attempts to pick up a Pom Pom or another small object).
