Motor Skills Activities

We have been working on our fine and gross motor skills in Room 8.

We have set up “Room 8 Repairs” we are upcycling some old stools, recovering an old bench and making a pompom rug .

If you would like to practise your fine motor skills at home try out some of the following activities:

Sewing or threading activities.

Making pom poms.

Using chop sticks or tweezers to pick up beads, buttons or lego.

Use an old tennis ball, ask an adult to cut a mouth out for you, add googly eyes and feed him buttons.

Threading beads or making perler bead creations.
Check out our pom pom rug!

Make a peg tower using washing pegs and sticking them to the table with plasticine.

See how long you can make a chain out of paper clips. Why not have a competition with a friend to see who can make the longest chain in 2 minutes.
Why not make your own lacing board with cardboard, felt pens and ribbon?
