Push Pin Pictures

Here's a fun activity to help children develop a tripod grasp. Find a simple line drawing. Preschool coloring books are a good source for these. Secure it to a piece of colorful construction paper with a couple of small pieces of tape. Put the construction paper on a rug square or on a carpeted floor. Take a regular or extra large push pin and poke holes along the outline of the picture. The holes should be fairly close together (no more than 1/8" apart). Once you're done, carefully remove the picture from the construction paper. Tape your picture in a window where the light can shine through the holes and enjoy your creation.
