Ribbon winding fine motor activity

Ribbon winding is a lovely activity to encourage focus and it’s a nice change as it can be done standing!

Make one yourself using  a piece of dowel.


(I tried a paintbrush and a chopstick but they don’t work well because they are tapered.)


Make sure your ribbons are the same length but they can be a different width.


Roll them up and roll them down … slowly!

  1. I haven’t seen this idea before, Lucy, but I think it would be a very calming activity and one that encouraged concentration as the ribbons are wound up. You are a wee bit clever, my friend! Meg:)
