- Gather your materials. I got three different lock/ key combos at a discount store; you want them to look different, so it’s not too confusing. I also a binder ring for a key chain and a tray to keep the activity in one place.
Put all three keys onto the ring.Lay out the locks and key chain and invite your child to open these locks.I helped with the first before I was shooed away by my independent 2-year-old. Let them do it themselves, and even fail. Only help if they ask for help.
Like locks and keys another great fine motor activity is lacing or stitching. This stitching block is SO much fun and perfect for schools and homes that do not have a lot of storage space.
