Pulling and unscrewing lids is sensory fun while developing eye-hand coordination and dexterity. First cut off the tops of containers and punch holes in them. I demonstrate how in the video....
Attach them to a sturdy board using stretchy cord or elastics. Young children will enjoy the sensation to skin, muscles and joints as they pull unscrew or pull the lids.
Next you may teach how to match up the lids to the corresponding container tops and put them back together. But, remember..... taking apart is easier and a better place to start teaching a new skill.
