Valentine’s Day Fine Motor Skills

Valentine’s Day Fine Motor Skills

What do you do when your Tot grows up and are a little too big for Tot Trays? Continue to work on Fine Motor skills by bringing out new fun activities! My niece and Lil’ Red were very interested in doing “school” so out came some fun Valentine’s Day Fine Motor Skill activities. My sister and I were taking inventory on activities and came up with quite a few. I am only showcasing 5 Fine Motor Skills that are for Preschool and Kindergarten age.

Valentine's Day Fine Motor

Here are 5 simple Fine Motor activities that can be easily be put together:

1. Spiky Pom-Pom Tonging- 10 well paint palette, red tongs, spiky pom-poms, applesauce or ramekin.
