DIY Piggy Bank Fine Motor Activity

19th Jan 2014

Make your own "piggy bank!"  This DIY fine motor activity involves just two easy steps:

1.  Cut a slit into the lid of any old food container (this is an almond can).

2.  Use poker chips, play money, or real money to push into the bank.

Unlike store-bought piggy banks that have a wide slot for coins, the thin slit here provides resistance when you push items through for both hand strengthening and proprioceptive feedback.
