Baby bottle holder – slide this on over the bottle so the baby can learn to hold their own bottle. This gadget can be good for little ones that have gross motor delays, fine motor delays, and general difficulties with bringing hands to the middle (midline) to hold things.

These Globbles are an interesting Tactile Sensory Processing item! They are very sticky, and even stick to each other well! Kids can squeeze, poke, smash them and experience a unique type of texture when using them! For smaller kids, use with caution and/or adult supervision.
Amazon Item: Spike the Fine Motor Hedgehog. This toy is great for preschool aged kids! Build fine motor skills by placing the pegs in the holes of the hedgehog. Very cute and fun also! Have them place the pegs into the holes, talk about the colors, and remove the pegs from the hedgehog to clean up!
This game is great for kids, especially 4-5 year olds! To work on cognitive, fine motor, visual motor, and visual scanning skills!
These Crayon Rocks are great for encouraging kids to use their fingertips and thumb to grasp the crayons, and practice their Fine Motor skills! (Not for use with kids under 3 due to choking hazard!)
Drawing on a vertical surface has many great benefits for fine motor coordination. Kids can also practice standing in one place and reaching the entire board – and crossing midline when reaching with each hand!
These mats are great for 0-6 months age range. You can use them for gross motor, fine motor, vision, cognitive, and language skills.
