Crazy Straw Fidget & Fine Motor Challenge

Our COTA-student, Kaylin Blackwell, created these inexpensive items for fidgeting and fine motor fun:

"So this is my crazy straw activity. I've made two different versions and attached pictures of both below. I used them to work on motor planning, sequencing, and coordination, but the maze version would also be useful for wrist extension/flexion."  K.B.

Add a washer or another item to slide through the straw "maze" and use pieces of tubing or an old pencil gripper at the ends.

This would be a nice, quiet fidget toy.  Or, a soothing fine motor coordination activity, with that soft material.
Thanks for sharing, Kaylin!
