Bilateral pin removal activity
I came across this battery operated toy in the discount bin. It has flashing lights on the top and when you grasp the base and raise your arm - it reminds me of the statue of liberty. (Its supposed to be a July 4th celebration novelty item). I found that the orange cone fit perfectly and I taped it in place. Next I clipped on the clothespins for the kids to remove and drop into the basket attached to the tack. some kids did this as the horse walked. One girl did this while squatting on top of the horse. Another faced backwards and had nice trunk rotation as she reached behind to drop the pins in the basket.
