Unicorn Fine Motor Bin

Little hands will love this fun threading bin! It is a great fine motor exercise that kids will be magically enchanted with!


Harper and I love to make and play with bins. They are perfect for an afterschool activity for her, and she is always curious about what she might find in one of our bins. This was a really easy bin that I put together literally from our junk drawer. 

We had a bunch of Ikea straws from a recent binge visit and a few sections of ribbon. I ran across these leftover party favor unicorns and knew immediately what we would do with these goodies.

Supplies:
Straws; I used soda and milkshake straws in assorted colors to offer variety.
I used 4 straws of each color
Ribbon; 12” length; add several strands.
A plastic bin with a clip on lid




Instructions:
Cut your straws by color in assorted lengths
As you cut the straws add it to the plastic bin to layer the colors



Tie a knot one on end of the ribbons. Depending upon the width of your ribbon you may want to add
several knots so that the straws will not slip off



Add a few unicorn figurines for fun



With supervision, allow your child to explore the texture and colors of the straws in the bin and thread
them onto the ribbon.



This was a fun fine motor activity for Harp with an added touch of unicorn fun. She happily threaded straws most of the afternoon!
