The "Insertions Ring Stack" is very versatile and develops many skills. Children or adults with disabilities may find repetitive tasks soothing. This involves pushing rings down the tubing and inserting small objects inside. Your child or client will need to think about which of these steps to perform. This activity promotes:
• eye-hand coordination
• using hands together
• visual and auditory stimulation
• proprioceptive stimulation by pushing the objects down
• following directions
• sequencing skills
• problem solving

I cut the rings and small objects out of plastic bottles, but you can use other types of rings or small objects in the same way. Be sure to supervise closely or avoid if your child or client puts small objects in his or her mouth.

This activity can be adapted by
• using larger rings to make success easier
• smaller rings that require force to push and thus, provide greater sensory feedback.
• try placing a motorized toothbrush inside the container and see how your child or client reacts!
