Activities for Infants and Toddlers – Popsicle Mold In and Out Works

Want a cheap and easy way to provide an in and out work for your young child?  It’s the end of the summer, so popsicle molds are on sale.  They’re cheap to begin with, so stores are practically giving them away at this time of the year.  I actually own three different versions of popsicle molds for L (only two are pictured).  When she gets tired of one version, I swap it out for a different one and she’s instantly interested again.  These works are good for building fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination as the child must grasp the top with a pincer grip and maneuver it into the relatively small opening.  Repetition of the activity builds focus and concentration.
