Toddler Activity: Straws thru holes

What you need:

  • any small cardboard box.
  • puncher
  • straws

I punched some holes in the box and gave it to Eliana( 15 months) to poke the straws thru the holes. It was easy for her(pincer grasp develops around 10 months) and she played with it for a really long time! She kept removing and putting the straws again and again.

This post explains the variety of grasps while putting the straws in.

Simple but engaging activity !
