The development of fine motor skills is so crucial for children’s development and success in learning and in life. Fine motor skills develop along a continuum, and are important for mastering tasks such as tying one’s shoes, buttoning up a shirt, and writing letters.
With my Christmas Fine Motor Pack, you can continue to support the development of your children’s fine motor skills during the entire Christmas holiday season.
This pack uses bright, colorful photographs of common Christmas items including Santa, Christmas trees, presents, reindeer, and more to stimulate your children’s interest and delight.
Note: For more Christmas printables your kids will love, see my Christmas Activities for Kids page.
The 40+ pages of activities in this Christmas Fine Motor Pack give children practice with nine different types of fine motor activities.
1. Pincer Grasp Practice
Children use their thumbs and forefingers in a pincer grasp to place buttons, stickers, coins, or any other small manipulative material on the dots.
2. Lacing Practice
Children weave yarn in and out of the holes to practice their lacing skills.
3. Tracing Practice
Children trace lines in a variety of shapes to work on pencil grip and overall fine motor control. The pack includes straight lines, angled lines, curvy lines, and looped lines.
4. Tweezer Practice
Children use tweezers to place cotton balls or pom poms on the pictures.
5. Drawing Shapes
Children work on pencil grip and fine motor control while also learning shapes.
6. Q-Tip Writing Practice
Children use a q-tip to fill in ten frames, thereby combining pencil grip skills development and numbers practice.
7. Pin Punching Practice
Children use a pin puncher to punch holes in the letters.
8. Hole Punching Practice
Children use a hole puncher to punch holes around the cards to really strengthen those hand muscles.
