Play a Finch-inspired Fine Motor Game

What you need:

  • Toy bugs and insects (available from cheap $2 shops)

  • Chopsticks or tweezers for each player

  • An empty egg carton for each player

    —Scatter the toy bugs and insects over the floor or a flat surface. Each player acts as a mother or father finch by using the chopsticks (finch’s beak) to pick up as many insects as possible and place them into their egg carton for their babies.
    ● When all the insects have been collected, line them up to see who has collected the most.
    ● The player with the most insects wins.
    Going further:
    ● Design your own games using other animal families as inspiration.
