Developing your child’s fine motor skills is one of the easiest ways to set an incredible foundation for future learning! Not sure where to start creating playful activities that strengthen the little muscles in your child’s hands and fingers? Well you can grab the Fine Motor Play Pack and take all the guesswork out of planning hands-on activities to support your child’s development as they prepare to head off to school!
So many tasks your child completes throughout their day involves the use of the small muscles in their fingers and hands – from picking up the food in front of them to deliver it to their mouth, to opening and closing a drawer or cupboard; to putting on their pants, to cutting a piece of paper, to holding a paint brush or pencil. The activities in our Fine Motor Play Pack are thoughtfully designed by an early years teacher (that’s me!) to support your baby, toddler and preschooler as they strengthen those important little muscles.
This Play Pack features 89 pages of age-appropriate play ideas, printables and learning resources for each stage from babies to the preschool years.
- You’ll find easy ideas to support your baby including DIYs featuring recycled wipes containers, pegs, washi tape and even your child’s snacks.
- Your toddler will love the easy posting activities, DIY latch board, magic play dough and surprise puzzles.
- You’ll find easy and engaging process art activities to develop fine motor skills as well as activities using leaves from the garden, tongs for transferring, threading activities and play dough activities (hint: this is one of my favourite ways to support fine motor skill development!)
- Printables for colour matching, cotton tip painting, tracing and cutting sheets, play dough mats and popsicle stick numbers – all with a fun and engaging fine motor twist!
Each activity features step by step instructions and materials so you can spend your time connecting and playing rather than researching what to do with your child
Before you know it, your little learner will be ready to head off to big school and you’ll cherish loads of beautiful memories of play and connection knowing they’ll thrive at big school!
This pack of fine motor activities for kids is designed to save you time, whether you’re a classroom teacher, family daycare educator or a parent looking for engaging ways to help your child develop those important fine motor skills.
You’ll love having everything planned ready for you to get stuck right into the playful learning and memory making with your little learners. Use the resources at home 1:1 with your child or in a classroom or family daycare setting for small group activities, centres or independent work! Let’s take the guesswork out of playtime!
