First, Let’s Look at St. Patrick’s Day Fine Motor Activities!
Inside The Fine Motor Pack, You Will Find:
- Instruction Sheet: How to complete each activity as well as some variations!
- 2 Lacing Cards
- 2 Hole Punching Cards: Hole punching requires coordination and strength! For little hands, I like to use these mini punchers! They are perfect for working on a 3 point chuck and lateral pinch.
- Manipulative Sheet: On this printable are 15 circles. Anything like buttons, pennies, stamps, or stickers, can be used!
- Play dough mat
- Matching Sheets: The next couple of printables work on matching. Children can use crayons or markers to connect the pictures. Place the paper on a cork board then rubber bands and thumbtacks can also be used OR laminate the sheets and use Wikki Stix!
- Finally, we have a few ways to work on using tongs ( Gator Grabbers and Strawberry Huller work great!) to help work on scissor skills. Children can use clothespins, too! All themed fine motor activities can use the same clothespins! In other words, prep once and use over and over! Regular sized clothespins and mini clothespins work!
