Everyday Fine Motor Materials from A to Z | Still Playing School

Everyday Fine Motor Materials from A to Z

Fine motor skills are very important to early childhood activities! Working little hands and fingers through play is how kids strengthen muscles to get ready to write, type, draw, button coats, and much more. We work on these skills so often that we wrote a book titled 99 Fine Motor Ideas!

Everyday materials can strengthen kids' fine motor skills! Great for pre-writing through play, teachers, and OT!


We love to use a variety of fine motor tools and materials in our invitations to play. I have organized my favorite blogs to help show you at least 26 fabulous fine motor materials that you most likely already have in your home right now! Each day a different blog will introduce you to an everyday fine motor material they have used to engage children. We will share creative ways to play, create, explore, and craft with these items!
