DIY Toy Cookie Jar

Add text (2) One of the things we are working on with Little C is her Fine Motor Skills. All those muscles in her hands are crucial in activities as she grows. Her Occupational Therapist suggested making a slotted jar for her to work with. ┬áSince we have a toy cookie set, I decided that a toy cookie jar would be perfect for her! What You Need Empty coffee can, ice cream pail or other container with a removable plastic lid Duck Tape (I picked a pink argyle one. Girlie everything for our princess!) DSCF5480 Scissors This is such an easy project. Clean and dry your container. Cover the out side with Duck Tape of your choice. There are so many fun designs, and it is really inexpensive. The best part is, you need so little, that you will have Duck Tape left for another project! DSCF5481 Use your scissors to cut a slot in the lid to fit the cookie. (We use a Melissa and Doug Cookie set) DSCF5489 The bigger the slot, the easier it is. If you want to further develop your child’s fine motor skills, save extra lids that fit, and make the slot smaller as your child progresses. That’s it! Now you have a toy cookie jar. This can also be a piggy bank when she gets older. For now though, Little C is loving her toy cookie jar. She is using different hand muscles to manoeuvre the cookie into the slot, which is also helping with her problem solving skills. A great toy for fun and development! DSCF5487
