Description

Use the 20ml large amber glass medicine dropper for fun, like making weirdly colored pictures and (more importantly), to improve the fine motor skills in the hands.

Functions:  Using the dropper helps to –

  • isolate the fine muscles that fingers use for writing
  • strengthen the muscles in small hands
  • practicing this activity improves coordination, control and patience
  • all these functions are important to learn how to write.
