Fine Motor Skills for us is hand work and strengthening the hand muscles and working on finger grips/grasps that will prove so useful as he gets older! This simple Easter fine motor skills activity tray uses nothing more then paper, pencils, scissors and a thumbtack! So simple!

Easter Egg Fine Motor Activities Set Up
Use what you have. Keep it relaxed and simple. Some of the big things we are working on, fine motor skills wise, is line tracing, coloring and scissor cutting! Throw together some colored paper, colored pencils, scissors and a little creativity for some fun Easter fine motor activities. Our biggest thing is interest level on his part, the less I fuss over the activities, the more he enjoys them!
You will notice that we repeat activities from week to week with different themes for the holidays or seasons. It’s all about practice, practice and more practice! I love to show you what we really do everyday at home!
Preschool age children love novelty! I like to mix up our activities and present them in a fun way. He enjoys choosing which one to do next. I keep each activity short and sweet so he enjoys sitting with me at the table. I have been noticing lately, he is ok with me working while he works or even letting me clean up in the kitchen. Don’t worry, he is still in eye’s view and always safe! You may notice a few less pictures as I help him become more independent. Sometimes the camera is bothersome!
Easter Egg Fine Motor Activities Scissor Skills
Our fine motor activities tray included two different cutting skills activities. The first as you see below was to cut along the lines to split up the Easter egg. The second was to cut out the Easter egg shape. He did both quite well and enjoys using scissors! The second activity he cut to bits after cutting out the shapes. He did keep busy!
Easter Egg Fine Motor Activities Thumb Tack Paper Punching
We have done this many times. He moves through it much more effortlessly with practice. I can tell his finger grip is better and his hands are stronger. He does not need prompting and is very careful and thorough! He would often remark at first that his hands were tired. I didn’t hear that once!
Easter Egg Fine Motor Activities Line Coloring & Tracing
This is his least favorite activity by far. He does not like to color and has no interest right now in writing or drawing! He does some at preschool, and I like to include a little extra at home. He did put a nice amount of effort in to his eggs. I made 4 for him to trace and color.
Practicing fine motor skills can be fun and simple to do anytime! We love simple to set up activities at home using what we have and a little creativity!
