Therapy Thursday: Milk Jug Gem Drop

This is another fun fine motor activity using a recycled container.  All you need is a cleaned out milk jug and some colorful gems (or other small items).  We used the colored gems that we purchased at the Dollar Tree to use on our light table.  Trevor enjoyed doing this activity and the gems work great for this because they make a loud and satisfying “plunk” when you drop them in.  Another bonus to using the gems is working on labeling colors and counting.

Dropping them in:

This is fun!

Shaking it up once all the gems were in:

A great, less messy way, to practice pouring:
