Using The Avalanche Fruit Stand Game To Support Fine Motor Skill Development

Avalanche Fruit Stand

This is firm favourite with the kids I see in occupational therapy. They love the challenge to the game. It’s great to work on turn taking. It can also be used for bilateral hand use as they need to hold the card steady when they are turning the spinner.

The tweezers encourage a pincer grasp with the grooves for finger and thumb placement and they are firm enough that children need to use strengthening force to close the tweezer around the fruit.

This is a great game for working on problem solving skills as the child needs to figure out how to get the fruit out without dropping other pieces of fruit. I like to use the rule that they can’t take fruit from the top. This is a great all-rounder of a game for fine motor skill development.
