    Can you help suggest what activities can be done for very low functioning kids at home at this time of pandemic lockdown? These kids are very limited when it comes to fine motor skills.

    For my students I save empty plastic containers with screw on lids. Anything from laundry detergent to gatorade bottles. I unscrew all of them then have the kids match them to the correct container and practice turning the cap. Any sorting activity is good too. If they happen to have a large jar of coins at home the kids can sort the coins into bowls. Picking up the coins is good fine motor practice. Also, picking up items using tongs like kitchen/salad tongs would work.
