With Thanksgiving coming up next week I thought it was time to finally finish up this Thanksgiving Fine Motor Pack to share with others!
As with all my fine motor packs, this Thanksgiving Fine Motor Pack uses real photographs of turkeys, corn, pumpkin pie, cranberries, and other Thanksgiving images.
I had a lot of fun looking for Thanksgiving images to use in this pack. I hope your children will enjoy the activities herein while they work on developing their fine motor skills.
Note: For more Thanksgiving printables your kids will love, see my Thanksgiving Activities for Kids page.
The 40+ pages of activities in this Thanksgiving 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. This is another opportunity to practice pencil grip skills.
8. Hole Punching Practice
Children use a hole puncher to punch holes around the card to really strengthen those hand and finger muscles.
9. Cutting Practice
Children use scissors to cut pictures apart as well as in half along straight and wavy lines.
As you can see, this Thanksgiving Fine Motor Pack is jam-packed with awesome fine motor activities for kids in preschool through first grade.
