There children will be expected to use a pencil, cut straight lines, and take care of themselves but buttoning and unbuttoning their clothes. We have long been fans of fine motor activities here at Mess For Less. Our 18 Fine Motor Activities for Preschoolers post has some great ideas for kids of all ages. Since I have a 3 year old in addition to twins who will be starting K this Fall, I wanted an activity that she could do as well. I found some straws I never used and had a variety of tongs/tweezers and an idea took shape.
- Shaving cream
- Colored straws
- Variety of tongs and tweezers
- Plastic container
