Show and Share: Pincer Grasp Play-doh Snake

Educators share ideas, resources and teaching tips

This is a simple activity, but great for developing the pincer grasp. I found a great chart showing the fine motor development of children here. 

Most of my students in my class are at the 2-3 years old or below. So this simple activity is great for developing strength in their fingers and the pincer grasp. 

1. Roll the play-doh. 

2. Using their "go" fingers pinch the play-doh using their pincer grasp. 

This simple activity will help your students get ready for correct pencil grasp and for holding scissors and cutting!
