Spring-a-ling! Bringing Two Hands Together
Perfect for children with fine motor delays and mild Cerebral Palsy. Encourage children to use two hands together. Try first simply shaking the toy. (it has a lovely shaky feel) Then by turning the toy, the child will cause the beads to move. Finally, have the child hold the Spring-a-ling with one hand, and slide the beads with the fingers of the other hand. Take it on long car rides, or for waiting rooms!
