Donut Fine Motor Activities Pack
These pages are print-and-go making them perfect for busy preschool moms and teachers. Many of them can be used on-the-go, as well.
First, we have a tracing page. You can print these pages on regular printer paper and have your kids use pencils or crayons to trace the lines.
You could print them on cardstock and laminate them, as well. If you do this, your kids can use dry-erase markers to trace the lines. Then, you can erase the lines for them to do the activity again.
For a whole different fine motor activity, your kids can use WikkiStix to trace the lines. WikkiStix are wax-coated strands of yarn that kids can bend and mold to make shapes. The wax sticks to the laminated pages making them perfect for a portable activity.
Next up, you’ll find some donut coloring pages. These can be used in a variety of ways. The simplest way to use them is to have kids color the donuts drawing sprinkles on each one as they go.
You can print the pages on colored paper if your kids don’t want to color them. Then, you can have them put playdough sprinkles or colored bead “sprinkles” on the donuts.
Playdough is a fun fine motor tool, because kids build their muscles by pinching and rolling the playdough into “sprinkles”. If you choose to use bead “sprinkles”, have your kids use tongs to pick them up. That’s another way to build fine motor muscles.
Lastly, you’ll find three “color and trace” or “color and cut” pages. After coloring the donuts, kids can trace or cut the outline around each donut. They can also trace the lines with WikkiStix.
Again, if your kids don’t like to color, you can print these pages on colored printer paper or cardstock.
