Fine Motor Play with Modeling Clay and Straws
"Kids will have fun imagining and creating with modeling clay and straws. This activity is a great way to recycle and reuse those plastic straws that might otherwise go to the landfill. The colorful modeling clay is fun to mold into characters or structures, and it keeps its shape throughout some awesome hands-on small world play. This fine motor activity helps to strengthen fingers and hands in preparation for future drawing, printing and writing activities."
