Home Made Fine Motor Activity

Here's an easy fine motor activity you can make at home.  All you need is a clear, plastic jar and cotton balls.  Have the kids use tongs to pick up the cotton balls and put them into the container.  To increase the difficulty of the task, leave the lid on and have them put the balls through the pour hole.  Once the jar is filled, they have made a cute snowman.


  1. This is a great way to make this more fun for somebody. I feel like it's easy to get frustrated if you can't do one of these activities, it's even worse if it's something that you need to be able to do. If people can make it truly seem like a game, it will be more fun and much easier for people to do this work and feel happy about it.

  2. Not only will it be more fun for the children, any parent can easily make this from things they already have. Or, have your child make it!
