‘Hanging Out’ is the level 2 pincer grip pack, which is a step further than having children simply pick up items with their fingers. Using sprung pegs not only helps strengthen fingers, but also hand-eye coordination.
Initially, children are only capable of using their whole hand to hold and manipulate small objects. Once a true pincer grip emerges, a child is then capable of using just his thumb and index finger to do so. With a strong and controlled pincer grip, a child can easily twist dials, open and close a zipper, turn the pages of a book, and even start to use crayons or pencils with precision.
Our aim is to create a strong foundation, by introducing very specific skill sets, that the children will need to build on as they travel through their educational journey.
