Building finger Strength
Kyra is wearing Benik splint to strengthen her finger on the left as she plays with the toy I made her.
Kyra is having trouble opening her Left Index finger and Benik is supposed to help.
The toy Kyra is playing is a regular old sugar box, which I painted , as you can see I failed terribly at it.
I then made cuts on lids, few were wider than the than the Popsicle width, so that Kyra wont get frustrated and few were snug to challenge her as well.
The more she pulls the Popsicle sticks out she used her wrist, fingers, and arm. So many things are working together. very useful toy to make. Also notice how she keeps wobbling back on the floor with each pull that is lack of core strength
