Spring Flower Fine Motor Tray Activity

fine motor tray activity This super simple spring activity packs some wonderful skill practice for both hand eye coordination and fine motor skills. As children find and fit the flowers into the holes they are using their hand eye coordination skills and as they pinch the stem and press them into the floral foam under the colander they are giving their fine motor skills a workout.

Gather your materials. You will need a colander, some bunches of artificial flowers, scissors, and floral foam in a half circle shape. spring activity for preschool

Start by flipping your colander over on top of the floral foam. fine motor activity for preschool

Snip the flowers and lay them out ready for play. flower activity for preschool

All ready!

My daughter was so eager to play. She decided to put them in using a pattern pink then yellow. flower arrangements fine motor activity for preschool

As she popped them in she counted them first all the flowers, then after they were all in she counted the yellow, then pink. fine motor

This will be taken into my preschool class to help my 2.5 and 3 year old students develop their hand eye coordination as well as fine motors skills and it will make my classroom so cheery as well!fine motor flower arrangements preschool

St. Patrick’s Day LEGO Challenge!

St.Patrick's Day Lego ChallengeWe love LEGO challenges, but my 4 year old and I love them for very different reasons. I love them because they build confidence, fine motor skills, and they keep her totally engaged while I cook/check email/have a conference call. She loves them because they are fun and challenging. Our most recent LEGO challenge was a St.Patrick’s Day themed one and I really thought that the LEGO leprechaun and pot of gold would be super tricky but I was super wrong. She plowed through them like a pro. When I find and activity my daughter ( or my students at school) really likes and engages her I will adapt it from theme to theme. It’s familiar but still new and she is excited to do something with the new theme. It keeps her interested and learning and I don’t have to re-invent the wheel.

Gather your materials. I admit I LOVE creating these little LEGO creations. It takes me back to when I’d challenge myself as a child with LEGO. If this isn’t your thing you can still do challenges with simple creations like these we did a few months back. St.Patrick's Day Lego Activity

I always make two exactly the same and then dismantle one so my daughter has a model and all the pieces she needs to recreate it. Soon I will be putting all the pieces for all 4 in one pot and let her sort them, but we aren’t there yet. No need to make this more challenging that needed. It’s supposed to be fun.

I had planned to do this at my desk but when she saw the tray on the floor where I was getting an overhead shot of the materials she started building right there. lego challenge for kids

As she completed each creation she shifted around the tray. Lego challenge for children Oh and I have been asked by numerous readers about where I got this tray – Dollar Tree. It’s held up very well too.Lego challenge for preschool st paddy's day

The pot of gold was shockingly simple for her to recreate, I thought the rainbow on the diagonal would pose a challenge but it didn’t!pot of gold

Even though the challenge wasn’t easy she still loved them and these symbols of St.Patrick’s Day gave us a chance to talk about leprechauns, rainbows with pots of gold and the end of them, and Ireland. That is the other main goal of these holiday themed activities to spark interest in the holiday, it’s symbols and traditions.lego challenge st.patrick's day
