This is a variation to the links-in-a-can toy I made for Matthew when he was around 15 months old. Using bingo chips and a clean baby formula can with a small slot cut on the lid, this is a simple activity to practice the pincer grasp and hand-eye coordination. Or we sometimes drop coins in a piggy bank to achieve the same fine motor goal.
Note: these photos were taken last year just a few days before he turned 3.
