Two players face each other. The players hold right hands and curl their fingers into each other’s palms so their hands ‘lock’. Both players touch the tips of their thumbs together. See which player can pin down the other player’s thumb under their thumb for three seconds. They are the winner of that round in thumb war.
Make this a family activity: Have a thumb wrestling tournament with your family.
This activity promotes dexterity, strategy making, and fine motor skills.
