Five Fine Motor Games

I never know how fine motor activities are going to go with the boys, and usually they really enjoy them (even what seems simple or potentially boring) and they do well with them. Here are a few recent favorites:

1. Pompoms in a toothbrush holder


2. Spaghetti (uncooked) in holes in a box (I made the holes with a pencil so they’re a good size for this. You could also use something like an empty parmesan cheese container that already has holes in it.)


3. Pipe cleaners in a soda bottle


4. Cotton balls in a paper towel tube


5. Cheerios on spaghetti (standing in playdough to keep it upright)


And a bonus #6: Popcorn in an ice cube tray
