When my three year-old looked at me with his big blue eyes and asked for help “writing like his daddy”, I immediately launched into super mommy mode – pulling together 18 motivating games that would develop his hand-eye coordination, arm and hand strength and grasp. The mega pack of fine motor activities is perfect to use as centers or homeschool lessons.
Fill a squeeze bottle with salt and trace lines and shapes.
Pull out a box of crayons to make rainbow lines.
Use a clothespin to pick up pom pom “gumballs” and place them in a jar.
Cover lines on a fine motor mat with buttons, coins, foam stickers… anything! It’s so easy to incorporate this activity into any theme.
Add pom pom “sprinkles” to cupcake counting cards.
Use a q-tip dipped in paint to fill ten frames to match the numbers 1-10.
Stamp or bingo dab a trail of circles to help the frog reach his pond.
Solve fine motor puzzles.
Build super hand strength by punching out circles along a race track.
Flip a card and draw what you see.
And so. much. more.
