Are you looking for some themed winter fine motor activities for your school day or just to have fun at home? Today I am sharing some of my favorite winter fine motor activities for kids that work on a variety of skills needed for fine motor success.
1 || Sparkly Winter Play Dough Recipe
This sparkly winter play dough recipe has only two main ingredients plus whatever you want to use for glitter or a fragrance. It is super easy and SO soft. It makes the perfect “snow” play dough for fine motor activities.
2 || Winter Play Dough Invitation to Play
I used the play dough from above to set up this winter invitation to play set-up here.
3 || Snowflake Pre-Writing Line Activity for Preschoolers
This snowflake pre-writing line activity combines many great skills including visual-motor, pre-writing line practice, and fine motor skills.
And it’s super easy to set up and complete!
4 || Indoor Snowman Decorating from Fantastic Learning And Fun
Do you live in an area that doesn’t get snow as often? This activity would be perfect for decorating a snowman inside. Picking up the small pieces of felt to decorate and placing them on the “snowman” is great visual-motor and fine motor practice.
5 || Snowman Fine Motor Busy Bag from Stir the Wonder
I may be partial to snowmen, but this snowman fine motor busy bag would be the perfect quiet time activity or to have set-up at a fine motor station or in-between activities at school.
6 || Snowy Day Sensory Writing Tray from Pre-K Pages
Fine motor skills are a foundational skill for handwriting and this snowy day sensory writing tray is the perfect addition for any winter-themed fine motor activity day or handwriting station. You can use it to copy shapes or pre-writing lines and letter formations or spelling words.
7 || Tracing a Snowman Fine Motor Activity from School Time Snippets
You can use any of these 10 ways to practice hands-on pre-writing lines with this handout, along with markers or small crayons. Plus it’s a great way to practice shapes and lines with preschool-age children.
8 || Fine Motor Snow Painting from ABCs to ACTs
I love this one since it’s a great way to practice pencil grasp with a smaller “writing” utensil like the Q-tips.
9 || Fine Motor Mitten Activity from Best Toys 4 Toddlers
This is a great seasonal activity for lacing which helps visual-motor skills and bilateral coordination.
10 || Snowball Names Fine Motor Activity from Fun-A-Day
What a cute way to practice letter formations and also work on some pincer grasp.
