What’s Included:

  • MAZES: Students solve the mazes and follow the prompts. Each page features thematic mazes alongside a tracing activity or prompt.
  • PLAY DOUGH: Students use play dough to complete the prompts.Prompts require students to form and shape the dough to make pictures, solve problems, or complete the scene.
  • TRACING: Students trace the pictures with colored pencils or fine tip markers. Each page features thematic content and prompts students to complete the pictures.
  • SNAP CUBE CREATIONS: Students use counting cubes to make thematic pictures These cubes can be snapped together. If you do not have cubes, students can color the squares in the grid to match the picture.
  • PUZZLE PICTURES: Students use puzzle blocks to create thematic pictures. These sheets feature thematic shapes and provide students with easy and more difficult patterns. A full color example is available for easy reference.
  • LISTENING SKILL SHEETS: Teachers will read the directions aloud and the student listens carefully to finish the task. Tasks involve fine motor elements, coloring, and prepositional positioning of drawings
  • CUISENAIRE™ ROD PICTURES: Students use colorful centimeter rods to build thematic pictures.Students are asked to color the rod key to show how many rods they used of each color.

  • DAB & DOT: Students use daubers to dab by number in order to reveal the mystery picture. (Hold at a distance to help students see the pictures).
  • CUT & PASTE CRAFTIVITY: These crafty projects are perfect for little hands.Students color, glue, and cut to make fun, thematic pictures.Pair with a simple writing prompt or poem for extra learning!
  • POM PICTURES x 2: Students use pom-poms to complete the picture.For added difficulty have students use plastic tweezers to pick up the poms. Alternatively students can glue poms to make these sheets into a simple craft project.

How to Use:

The pack is organized into four weeks, and the simplest way to use this resource is to print it out and place into a three ring-binder. However, you might want to place many of the pages in page protectors for reuse. Most of the pages each week are considered non-consumable and could easily be reused throughout the years (Geoboard, Mazes, Play dough, Tracing, Cube Creations, Puzzle Pictures, Pom-Pom Pictures x 2, Cuisenaire Rods, Brick Builders). The remaining pages of each week are considered consumable as they require cutting, gluing, dabbing and poking (Dot & Poke, Cut & Sort, Dab & Dot, Craftivity). Many pages are adaptable if you do not have the manipulatives. For example, you can have students color instead of dab, or build.

    I used this as a busy activity for a student who was in my classroom for a very small portion of the day. He loved the activities. I love that there were enough that I could change them often and provide variety.

    This is the second month of fine motor activities we have used. I love them! We use one or two every morning. My son has fine motor difficulties, so these have been great for increasing his skills.

    This pack was awesome to work with kids from ages 3-5 over winter break! I teach at a childcare center, so during breaks, lesson time can get chaotic, but this had everyone engaged!

    Our students loved the variety of fine motor activities included in this resource. It was a great way to practice fine motor skills and executive functioning skills during our “Brain Lab” session at school.

    I liked this bundle because there were different levels of difficulty. There was something for my preschooler and kindergartener. I think some would work great with a 1st or 2nd grader too. It was also well designed with various themes and activities.
