Fine motor skills are important for everyday tasks such as buttoning buttons, zipping zippers, eating with utensils, cutting, drawing and writing. To help your young kids, here are fun activities and games you can do. You can get their fingers fiddling and get the wheels in their brains turning by sneaking in some learning during their precious playtime.
- What an Eeew-some Toy!
Did you know that gross games are a hot trend? Yup, you read that right! Gooey Louie is a great pick! Simply stick your fingers up his nose and carefully pick out his ooey boogers. Warning: pick the wrong one and his brain will fly out.
- A bowl of fun
Yeti in my Spaghetti is a cute game perfect for preschoolers. The game is simple: Thereâ€™s a yeti sitting on a bowl of spaghetti. Players need to use one hand to pick out the noodles one by one. Make sure the yeti doesnâ€™t fall into the bowl or else you lose.
- Be quicker than the fox
Catch the Fox is a fun game that teaches kids to develop keen observation skills and fast reflexes. When the greedy foxâ€™s pants fall down, you have to pick up the chooks as quickly as you can to fill up your coop. The fastest counter and picker wins.
- Chicken fun
The game Squawk will surely elicit a lot of laughs. Spin the spinner to see how may times you can poke the chicken. Players take turns poking the chicken until she opens her henhouse and lays and egg. Crack the egg open to see if you got a chick or a fried egg. The player with the most chicks wins.
- Pig poppinâ€™
Pop the Pig is a fun toy that will make kids shriek and giggle with the suspense and excitement. It teaches them about numbers, counting, and how to take turns, too. Spin the spinner, pop the burgers into his mouth, and pump his head. The more he eats, the bigger his belly gets until he pops!
