My clients helped me to make this activity out of my contact lens holders, a plastic container and stickers. I cut lots of slits on all sides of the container. Children or adults with developmental disabilities can enjoy this pull and push activity that works on:

1) stabilizing with one hand
2) strengthening the fingers
3) eye -hand coordination

Pulling and pushing using force provides sensory stimulation that many individuals find calming.

Optional adaptation: Sorting the colors so that each side of the container has a different color.
