These squishy elastic bands make for perfect transferring objects for toddlers. This activity tray was put out for Mason with the elastics scattered all over the tray and a pair of tongs on top. A basket sat on the left side as he is showing right handed preference at the moment but swapping the basket side would be idea for a challenge.
I used the tongs to pick up a single elastic and squeeze to keep it held the released it over the basket and then offered the tongs to Mason. Great for fine motor skills!
