Ever played with marbles? They are the most slippery ones. Trying to hold these marbles with anything else other than  fingers can be challenging. Here is an activity for children which can easily keep them engaged as well as help improve their fine motor skills.


1. Keep two bowls,tongs or tweezers on the table.

2. Fill a bowl with marbles.

3. Ask your child to transfer a single marble holding it with a tong or tweezers into the other empty bowl.

It's an activity that shall make a child easily forget his favourite TV shows. While the child enjoys transferring, it helps in developing their small muscles of hands and also enhances ability to grip.
