Valentine’s Day is all about love and friendship. While adults may celebrate the romantic aspect of the holiday, Valentine’s Day is a great opportunity for children to practice qualities such as caring for others and being a good friend.
This year I’ve added to my collection of Valentine printables with my Valentine’s Day Fine Motor Pack. Your children can celebrate the holiday while developing their fine motor skills with the fun and colorful activities in this pack.
For more Valentine learning activities, see my Valentine Activities for Kids page.
The 40+ pages of activities in this Valentine’s Day 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.
9. Cutting Practice
Children use scissors to cut out pictures.
As you can see, this Valentine’s Day Fine Motor Pack is jam-packed with awesome fine motor activities for kids in preschool through first grade.
