Skills this works on: Color recognition, matching, counting, turn taking, following directions, and strengthening the tripod grasp (while maneuvering the tweezers to pick up the gumballs).

Tip: The tripod grasp is essential for holding writing utensils and performing every day fine motor tasks such as opening and closing buttons, zippers, and containers.
