Here’s a quick and easy activity for practicing fine motor skills with little ones. You’ll first need some baby chicks. I found these adorable ones at Hobby Lobby. They were 40% off, so they were around $3.
You will also need kid tweezers and to print this Chicken Coops printable.
To do the activity, you will just have your child pick up the baby chicks using the tweezers and place them on the chicken coop that matches its color.
Using kid tweezers is such good practice for fine motor skills. It helps their small hands develop the pincher grasp.
This activity is also great for identifying colors. Since there are just three colors of chicks, it’s simple enough for toddlers to do.
This is such a simple, yet effective activity for practicing fine motor skills. Hope you’ll try it out!
They have similar games like this at my son’s school. I do like the colour/Easter theme you have going on too. I am featuring this for my Kids Co-op post on The Sensory Seeker this week.

Super cute Angela! Going to share this on my FB page today at http://www.facebook.com/onetimethrough Although I don’t think we have Hobby Lobby around my area, I’m sure you could also use plastic eggs to put in the coops too!
