Dino Drop~ fine motor skills

Today on Play, Craft, and Learn with Dinosaurs is all about Fine Motor Skills.  I set out to make a simple, yet fun activity that all my kids could enjoy.  They are 1 yr, 3 yr, and 5 yr.  The Dino Drop is a fine motor activity they can all have fun with.  It is easy to make and great for working on tiny hand muscles and hand eye coordination.

What we used:

Our Dinosaur letter discs- see how to make here

a cleansing wipe container

orange construction paper


How to make:

Remove label from container.  I used goo be gone.  Hot glue the orange construction paper around the container.  I had to cut a little off the bottom to fit.  Then glue on the printout label.

Baby brother 1yr, was the first to put it to use.  He was in heaven with all those wooden discs.

He was taking his time to look them over, exploring the texture and colors on each one.  I also have a 3 yr and 5 yr who are going to love this activity.

Big claps for getting the discs in the container.  For my 1 yr just dropping them in to the container was fun.  It was great to work on his hand muscles and hand-eye coordination.  For my 3 yr we will be able to count and go over colors and letters.  For my 5 yr he will be able to put the letters in order as they should go for the alphabet.  This is a great way to use one general activity for multiple aged kids.

With 3 small kids running around spilling juice and needing lots of hugs all day, easy is key.  This easy fine motor skills activity is perfect for us.  It’s a simple yet fun and great learning tool as well.
