Zinkies: fine motor that translates over to handwriting


I  knew about Squinkies (which they sell in a 3-pack at Costco right now), but I hadn’t heard of Zinkies, which are mini Squinkies, until recently when Tonya of TherapyFunZone.com mentioned them. When I saw them at Michaels and had a 50% off coupon, I was thrilled! So I got the $13 set for like $6. Yes, it’s kind of a lot for random tiny figurines, but they are soo cute and the tweezers are awesome too. 🙂 Great for hand strengthening, encouraging open webspace, working on instrinsic hand muscles, etc…fine motor skills that translate over to developing the muscles that help you hold your pencil correctly. 🙂
