I’m so excited to have Sarah from Little Bins for Little Hands here today to share a really neat game! She has an awesome blog all about really cool sensory activities and I am always in awe of her creativity! Thanks, Sarah, for sharing your idea with us!
Fine Motor Skills Colors Game
Fine motor skills, colors, numbers, counting and a little gross motor fun in one DIY game!
Super Simple DIY Fine Motor Skills Game Set Up
Fine Motor skills practice can be so much fun when you add legos, pom poms, tongs and turn everything into a floor game! I turned an unused laundry detergent pod container into the base of the game. I am sure you can find something great in your recycling bin! Liam helped me decorate the container and spell the words for Color Game. Then he added colored stickers.
After your container is ready, all you need to add is colored objects. Whatever you have works! We used legos and pom poms since we have so many! I like these big tongs from the dollar store. We also have these dice that have colors on one and numbers on the other. You can make your own, make cards, or simply call out combinations, like 5 purple!
Fine Motor Skills Game Play
I wanted to add a bit of gross motor fun to the game since we needed to stay inside anyway. Liam has walking Pneumonia and although he feels fine, he really needs to rest just a bit longer! To add a gross motor component, we spread out the pom poms and legos the length of the living room and put the container on one end. It was a pretty long trail!
Lots of fun running around gathering the items. You can add as many or as little as you need to make the fun continue! For more of a challenge, you could use smaller tongs or smaller items. For less of a challenge, you could just use your hands!
