This Practical Life activity was recently introduced. My daughter is successful with using tongs and clothespins, but still not ready for tweezers. This strawberry huller is great for the transition between tongs and tweezers. The activity develops finger/hand muscles, concentration, pincer grip and eye-hand coordination.
The apples are placed (left to right) on the stickers using just the fingers.
The strawberry huller is used to pick up the apple by the stem and transfer it into the jar.
