Fun OT Idea for Hand Strength

Strengthen hands by squeezing a tennis ball with a slit in it... and "feeding" the mouse, or alien, or any creature you'd like to make. I've had several students who had so much fun with this idea, and I didn't even decorate the tennis ball. We just pretended we were feeding a "monster" and I made munching sounds each time they "fed" the ball by putting poker chips into the slit.

Here's a picture of the decorated tennis ball:
