Choose one or two of the fine motor activities below.
Create a collage. Cut out pictures from a catalogue/magazine/newspaper and stick them all together.
Threading - use string/pipe cleaners and beads/pasta/cut up straws. You could make a pattern using different colours (you could paint the pasta different colours and let is dry before threading it).
Pouring – with your grown-up, collect different sized containers and a jug. Fill the jug with water (and a little food colouring if you have it); can you pour a little bit of water into each container? Try not to spill any. You could add different coloured food colouring into the containers and see what happens when the colours mix.
