Fine Motor Activities for Kindergarten

Activity ideas to work on fine motor skills with your kindergarten students. These skills are important for self-help and writing skill development.


Fine Motor Activities: Work on fine motor skills with your kindergarten students with these hands-on and engaging centers. Using different materials, these fine motor activities are fun and inviting.


One of the most important skills I work on with my students throughout the school year is fine motor muscle strengthening. I set up a different fine motor center every week to reinforce this skill.

I not only want my students to work on their fine motor skills, but I also want them to know why they are doing it. I explicitly teach them about fine motor skills. They also learn about why these skills are important. When engaged in these activities, my students are able to articulate what they are working on and why.

These 40 activities are perfect for fine motor centers, work bins, morning tubs, literacy centers or math centers. They are great for building fine motor muscle strength, and will also work on literacy and math skills.

I made this Activity Pack with this skill in mind. It makes it so easy to set up centers for your students. Everything is included, you just add the materials!
