We had a really fun week with fine motor this week and I can’t wait to continue this challenge for the rest of the month!
If you’re looking for more fine motor ideas, check out my Fine Motor Challenge Post or check out the 28 Days of Fine Motor Challenge Post by 3 Dinosaurs.
I gave Baloo a full noodle to give him a bit more of a challenge. They raced a bit, they noticed that some cheerios are more oval like, and some are more circular. Baloo realized he could tip the noodle upside down and dump the cheerios right into his mouth!
Day 2: Finger Dot Painting
I wanted to do an activity to day that practiced fine motor skills and letter identification for Royal. I came up with finger dot painting!! I set out a page with the letter C on it (our letter this week) and also a page for Baloo with a sight word on it, and then a paper plate with 2 colors.
After this they went on to just paint with their fingers.
Fine Motor Lunch
I love to do communal lunches for the boys from time to time. (Something that was greatly inspired by 1+1+1=1) The boys eat better like this, eat more, and we seem to connect better at lunch time (which otherwise tends to be a quick meal). I put out chopsticks to get some great fine motor action in!
As part of my Zoomin Movin Alphabet, I have stamping pages. I put out one of the stamping pages with the letter C and c and a stamping pad.
Coloring matching with clothespins
I think I initially made this when Baloo was just 3 years old. He was not interested in it at all back then. I finally got it back out and he loved it, as did Royal!
We have 8 colors in total, but I was worried that it would be too much. I just set out 4 to start.
We got out our trusty latches board by Melissa and Doug for some fun fine motor. All of the boys love this board! I find it to be most fun with Royal though. We talked about the colors, we could the doors, count the animals inside, and practice ringing the doorbell and opening the different doors. It’s just so much fun!
Another great fine motor toy, which I have talked about a lot before, is this doorbell house by Melissa and Doug! I just can’t get enough of this house, and luckily the boys love it too.
