Developing fine motor skills begins at birth. Literally. Watch baby making a fist. Or sticking fingers or maybe a whole hand, into his mouth. Even reaching out and wrapping a tiny hand around a parent’s finger. That’s the beginning of a life long process of acquiring and refining skills for independent living. Tin Music Box supports preschoolers in their quest. Turning the knob produces a classical melody. Making the connection between the action of turning the handle and that music she hears as a result helps a child understand cause and effect. Not only that, it develops grasp and wrist rotation. Early intervention specialist Holly Allen “really wanted these as they feature a handle that you turn or crank in order to get music. A different hand skill than button pushing….” We use our hands to accomplish multiple tasks. The more ways children practice new skills, the more adept they become. Made of durable, easy to clean tin, Tin Music Box measures 3″ diameter x 4 1/2″H.
