Fine Motor Activities 

Here are a range of fine motor activities you can do at home to develop your child's grip strength, hand eye co-ordination and pencil control.  

 

 

Thread pasta tubes onto some string, ribbon or a shoe lace to create a pasta necklace. You can colour or paint the pasta once finished. 

 

 

Using sand, sugar, rice or salt in a tray, give the children numbers or letters to practice writing. 

Support them in forming the letters in the correct direction, verbalising the sound or number as they write. 

 

Using some clothes pegs - see how many you can peg onto a bowl/cup at home and count them. 

Support the children in using their index finger and thumb to open the pegs. 

You could also write number of letters on the pegs for children to match to a piece of paper.

 

​​​​​​

 

You have some cutting skills sheets in your home learning pack. You can use these to develop your cutting using both hands - one to hold the paper and one for the scissors. You can also draw faces on toilet roll tubes and cut fun hairstyles into them using scissors. 

 

 

Any Duplo, Lego or building blocks activities will help develop fine motor skills, hand eye co-ordination, grip strength and imagination. Develop the children's vocabulary and language, encouraging key words such as numbers, colours and prepositions (on, under, above, next to etc.) whilst playing. 

 

Cheerios/bead on spaghetti - a simple way of developing fine motor skills, which can then be used as a maths activity showing 1:1 correspondents counting 1 cheerio to match number 1 etc.  

 

 

Threading pipe cleaners through a colander is fun and can create some lovely patterns. This can be developed to encourage the children to request specific colours when they are threading. 

We are reading Friends by Julia Donaldson from the Tales of Acorn Woods collection. 

If you have the book, read it together naming the characters as you read.
