STACKING STICKS – Building a tower
Object of game: to stack as many sticks on top of one another without the tower falling over.
Pick up the sticks by holding one of the balls with your thumb and index finger of one hand. Grasp the first stick with your other hand and bring it up to the ball. Let go of the ball and continue one at a time to stack the sticks horizontally alternating hands. Continue grasping the next stick, trying to stack the remaining other sticks one at a time. The more sticks stacked the higher the skill level.
To do this it takes eye-hand coordination and concentration and to focus in with no distractions. It’s also good in developing small motor skills. It’s fun at parties. Teachers use these in the class room. It is a quiet time activity.
