This nuts and bolts video helps the child to develop their fine motor skills and coordination of movements like hand-eye coordination, focus, and visual discrimination.

Materials Required:

1. Tray
2. Felt mat
3. Nuts
4. Bolts

Repeat this activity along with the child, as shown in the video. Encourage the child to try and work with the material they desire. When the child masters this activity, you can increase the challenge and add nuts and bolts of different sizes to match them.
