Tree Fine Motor Activities

With Earth Day coming up we have been doing some fun tree fine motor activities. I thought I would post a few that my youngest did the other day.

When I can always like to give a book with the activities that we do. It means a lot more to the girls and they remember the book when they look at the craft. Before these activities we read Curious George Plants A Tree. We talked about how important trees are.

What you need for this activity: 2 pages from the Mini Earth day Pack, Dot the T from the T Pack, glue, foam brush, construction paper: green, brown & blue, green glass gems, Do A Dot Art Marker Rainbow 6-pack, and Do A Dot Art Marker Brilliant 6-pack.

The first activity that she did was putting Glass gems on a dot marker tree. This is great for fine motor. While she put the gems on we counted them. She would take a handful out and we would guess how many she had. Then we would count as she placed them on the tree.

The second activity that she did was to dot the T & G on the dot marker tree. She had two colors of green and had to match up the correct colors for each letter. This is fun and can easily be change for sight words, other letters, or CVC words.

She did the color by number tree with glue and torn paper. This worked on her colors and fine motor. She also put the glue on with a foam brush to make it different. This makes a coloring page a hands on activity.

The last activity she asked for. She wanted to put pom poms on the letter T. And that is just what we did. She loves when we change things up.

    These look like fun! We’re going to try them out – thanks for sharing! I love anything to do with trees!

  2. I love using the gems on the do a dot pages! My kids love do a dots, but it seems like a waste to use them one time. The tree is a great idea — laminate it, and use it over and over again!

    Thanks for linking up to The Thoughtful Spot!
