Fine Motor Fun With Candy Shape Spin, Trace & Color

I love working different learning skills together. Today I have a printable that works on fine motor, shapes, and colors altogether.

Candy is a favorite theme for Halloween and also around Valentine Day. I love that it is a theme you can use all year round.

Today printable is a free candy jar shapes to spin, trace, and color.

This is a part of the 5 Days of Candy Printables.

I have always loved the different type or shape activities. I also love when I can add something else to it. I’m always looking for changes.

I love spinning activities so I added some fun things all together to make something fun you can use all year.

Each page has one shape to focus on. I love when you can use just what you want.

Each has a jar full of shapes to trace. There is a spinner for kids to spin and then trace and color making the color on the spinner.

How we used these printables

To make the spinner you use a paperclip and pencil. The pencil is held in the center for the circle. You flick the paperclip and watch it spin around.

These make great centers for kids to use. I love that they are no-prep. One thing that I do is have them color the wheel so they remember what the color names are. It has the colors, red, blue, purple, yellow, orange, and green.

Pumpkin Themed Number Tracing Strips

I love having seasonal things and fall is a favorite for me. I’ve got a new printable that matches with the Pumpkin ABC Tracing Strips from last year. They are Pumpkin Number tracing strips.

They are simple and easy to use.

Free Pumpkin Theme Number Tracing Strips - with numbers 1 to 20 - 3Dinosaurs.com

I have loads of pumpkin activities on the site and it would also work well with my Pumpkin Activities Pack!

These are great for later PreK and Kindergarten. You can use just the letters you are looking for or the whole set. They are great for the fall season. Plus you can just print and use the numbers you are working on.

I recommend cutting and laminating the strips to use them over and over. You can use a hole punch to make a hole in the circle and put them on a ring. It also makes them easy to store.

Or you can just print each page and use it as a no-prep tracing printable..

What you will find in these printables:

  • Numbers 1 to 20
  • Pumpkin Theme
  • Number digit and nubmer word tracing together
  • Exmaple of how you trace each number digit
  • Spot to put strips on a ring
  • 4 pages of printables

Be sure to check out all the Pumpkin themed Printables & Activities.
