This locks and keys video helps children develop their fine motor skills and coordination of movements like hand-eye coordination, focus, and visual discrimination.
Learning about how to open locks with keys teaches them the importance of safety and following rules. It also helps to develop their persistence as they learn to master the skill.
Sit with the child and repeat this activity. Encourage them to try and work with the material, as shown in the video. When the child is comfortable with this activity, you can increase the challenge and add locks and keys of different sizes to match them.
