Toddlers: Locks and Latches for Refined Hand Movements and Fine Motor Coordination

This is a fabulous puzzle by Melissa & Doug that provides lots of great fine motor skill and refined hand movement practice as your child locks and unlocks all the different types of fastenings here.

You can also use this concept to make your own material. If you have a closet door that you are not using frequently, you can add additional locks and latches to the portion close enough to the ground that your child can sit and play.
