Push and Pull

I recently was inspired while reading a blog post at My Stubborn Little Miss.  She showed how she had made a tool to help her daughter use her pointer and pincher fingers.  I thought this was a great ideas but wanted to add a different swing on it for Adeline.  I started with an egg cartoon, buttons, and rubber bands.  I cut the rubber band strung it through the button and tied it off in the back with another button and a little glue gun.

We have been talking about pushing and pulling so I thought this would work great for pulling on the button with the rubber band and at the same time strengthening those fingers a little.   The other items I glued in and we pushed the balls and hearts.

Pulling the button.

This is what it looks like on the back.  I tied the rubber band off with another button and glued it for extra reinforcement.


  1. Soooooo creative. Can't wait to make one - maybe next week. How is it holding up? I like how you put the button underneath as well to prevent the carton from ripping.

  2. Great idea. I could see my little one getting a real kick out of this. Thanks for sharing!

  3. this is a great idea, it looks cute and has a purpose too. love it

  4. What a great homemade toy for littles!

  5. Great fine motor skill activity! I'd love to have you share this with our readers for our Fun Stuff Fridays link up.

    1. I think that this was the pull activity that inspired my making this sensory pull activity.....
