Christmas Fine Motor

We have been doing  more Christmas themed tasks.  I have been trying to introduce some Christmas symbols to Adeline as we complete each activity.  For this task we used a simple soda bottle cut off and put our bells "in".  Adeline had fun ringing the bells too.

Next,  we worked on a stringing project.  I had found these gingerbread men at the Dollar Tree so I cut a little slit and cut out some circles to serve as ornaments.  I added a button to a ribbon and we strung gingerbread men and ornaments.  Stringing beads is a little hard for Adeline yet so I thought this would be a little simpler.  This project could be used with patterning as well.



  1. These are great ideas! I am trying to plan at least one more week of Christmas-themed trays for my little boy and I am going to keep these in mind, depending on what I can find at our local dollar stores.

    Adeline is such a pretty name and she looks adorable.

  2. Thanks for the wonderful fine motor skill ideas! My son started Kindergarten this year and we discovered that he was a little weak in this area and needs to do extra activities at home. Thanks for sharing!

  3. What fun ideas! I love the simplicity of them =-) Hope you have a great week & we'll see you next week at TGIF =-)

  4. I love the creative ideas you come up with to develop specific skills! That they're seasonal makes them even more appealing! Thanks so much for linking up with Montessori Monday.
