20 Fine Motor Painting Activities and Our NEW BOOK!

We couldn't be MORE excited to announce the launch of our newest Fine Motor Ideas book! Last year, the fabulous bloggers behind Fine Motor Ideas brought you our first book 99 Fine Motor Ideas for Ages 1 to 5 (Volume 1). Now we are back with the next volume, 100 Fine Motor Ideas: for Parents, Teachers & Therapists. 100 MORE fantastic fine motor activities to use with your little ones! But it doesn't stop there. These activities can also be used to assist in therapies for all ages, from young toddlers to the elderly. 

About the Book - From the Back Cover

The Hands Have It! 
Squeezing Play Dough, Fastening Buttons, Snipping with Scissors, and So Much More

100 Fine Motor Ideas presents fun, engaging ideas to involve the fine motor muscles in your child's hands, fingers, and wrists. Ten talented moms come together to share the most successful, creative, and inspiring invitations to play that they set up for their own kids to get those little hands working!

Your child's hands develop and change so much in the first years of life. From chubby newborn fists that can barely open to infants reaching for your face as they coo to toddlers self feeding and stacking blocks, soon you will have a preschooler learning to cut, write, and turn the pages of a book!

100 Fine Motor Ideas Includes: 
  • DIY Toys, 
  • Busy Bag Ideas for Playing On The Go, 
  • Sensory Exploration Invitations, 
  • Practical Life Ideas, 
  • Early Learning Activities to Introduce Colors, Letters, & Math, 
  • Art & Crafts to Inspire Creativity, 
  • Seasonal Ideas to Celebrate the Holidays.

Some of our favorite fine motor activities that engage all ages are painting activities. Every painting activity works fine motor skills.
