One of the most popular posts on Mess for Less has been our 18 Fine Motor Activities for Preschoolers, so I was inspired to gather some of my favorite Easter Fine Motor Activities. These kids activities are a great way for preschoolers and kindergartners to work on strengthening those important small hand muscles. Fine motor skills help with writing and cutting and become very important when kids start school. These fine motor activities will get kids in the Easter spirit while practicing an important skill.
If you try out these Easter fine motor activities, you’re probably interested in helping your child develop their fine motor skills. There are a number of supplies that I think are must haves for practicing fine motor skills. Eye droppers are perfect for squeezing up water. Kids Tongs can be used with pom poms and other small items for a quick activity. Pipe cleaners and styrofoam blocks also offer a variety of fine motor uses.

As a former teacher, I was really impressed with the quality of materials found in KiwiCo. Some moms have told me that they want to do activities like I do on Mess For Less with their kids, but they just don’t have to the time to go buy all the supplies and prepare them for the activity. KiwiCo is the perfect solution.
Every month your KiwiCo will focus on a particular theme like Colors, Dinosaurs or Gardening. KiwiCo offer a variety of projects ranging from crafts, imaginative play, science experiments and more.
