Hunt and Find Project

Purpose:  This activity encourages fine motor skills and tactile input.

Materials:  glue, shoe box top, matching small objects and any tactile medium.  We used matching foam shapes and dried corn for our project.

Step 1:  Have the child glue on one set of the matching objects on to the box top.  Let dry for 24 hours.

Step 2:  Place the box top on a large tray with the matching objects around the box top.  Pour the tactile medium into the box top.  For this example we used dried corn.

Step 3:  Now the child should search through the corn to find the matching objects.  The child can dig and trace fingers around each shape.  Once a shape is found in the corn, remove the matching shape off of the tray.  Continue until all shapes have been found.
