DIY sensory bins and motor development games are some of my favorite ways to help my son explore his 5 senses. They’re great for helping him develop the skills he needs to learn how to use his hands and fingers. I have a closet full of Dollar Tree bins that I’ve turned into fun and interactive sensory bins. This Spider Search- Fine Motor Development Game is a festive way to enjoy the Halloween spirit and it’s easy to make and use over and over.

Using white yarn and a plastic storage basket with holes, thread the yarn through the holes back and forth until you form what looks like a spider web. Hide a handful of spider rings in the web and then give your little one a pair of small tongs. Set a timer while you direct your tot to retrieve as many spiders as they can.
Spider Search- Fine Motor Development Game Supplies:
- White yarn
- Plastic storage basket with holes
- Spider rings
- Small tongs (I used ice tongs because they’re smaller)
