Fine Motor Activities
Remember the purpose of these type of activities is to help strengthen the muscles that control the hand, fingers and thumb as these help children perform self-care and every day tasks such as feeding themselves and buttoning and zipping clothing. These activities also play a crucial role in preparing children for writing!
The focus this week is pouring. Try filling a plastic box, bowl or container with rice, water, sand or pasta. Provide your child with plastic cups or containers to pour, fill and empty.
Date and weather
Talk about what day it is and what the weather is like outside with your child.
See video links below to sing along to.
Can your child copy the letters of their name using the name card that was sent home before the Christmas break. If you have not got a name card, you could always write the letters of your child's name on some paper and see if they can try and copy the letters underneath.
Please see activities and video clips below.
