Pushing Puff Balls is a fine motor activity for individuals with autism, fine motor delays, and cognitive disabilities. It is designed for children at a developmental age of 10-21 months. The puff balls are stuffed through the holes into the butter container to help develop motor control. This product is made by cutting small holes in the lid of an old butter container.

Technical Specifications: 


  • Cotton balls or puff balls (can be found at Target or a local craft store)
  • Clean plastic container with lid (I used a yogurt container)
  • Scissors

Prepping: Cut very small holes in the lid of the plastic container. Be sure they are small enough that it takes a little push to put the cotton ball through but not so tight that it will be impossible. Feel free to make slightly larger holes for younger toddlers.


  • Set out plastic container with lid on it and a handful of cotton balls. 
  • Demonstrate how to push the cotton balls through the small holes on the top. Let the child join in when he/she wants to.
  • it back a bit and allow the child to investigate it on his/her own.
