Step One: Gather materials.
- Plastic bag
- Permanent marker
- White pom poms
- One red pom pom
Step Two: Fill the plastic bag with all of the pom poms and seal the bag. This could also be done with might be beads, pin pong balls, ice cubes, or any small item.
Step Three: Draw a maze on the from one end of the bag to the other. Can be made easy or complex. Add additional mazes, or two different pom pom colors for the maze.
Step Four: Work the red pom pom from one end of the maze to the other. Squeezing the pom pom is a fine motor workout for the hands. The user will need to open up the thumb web space (the part of your hand between the thumb and fingers, and use those intrinsic small muscles of the hand).
