Clothes pegs are a fantastic thing to play with for children. The pincer grip they need to open and close them, is very similar to the grip they need for learning to write, so it’s a wonderful and fun way to develop those muscles.
Simply put some pegs into a container and peg them onto the sides of the container. Best if the container walls are quite thin and not too thick
Put some cotton balls into one container, then using a peg, one at a time transfer them to the other container.
If you have coloured pegs (usually the plastic ones are different colours), you can sort them into the different colours. Additionally you can peg socks or face washers onto some string or a wire clothes drying rack, or you can peg the clothes pegs onto some cardboard.
