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.

After having so much fun with our Easter Egg Number Matching. I though since we have been working on various CVC words with my middle Amelia, that we would have some fun with that. I also love to do puzzles with the girls.

I made the word family eggs and cut them up in various directions. Then put them in a big pile for the girls to sort through. They each picked a color they wanted to do.

After they finished sorting by color they sorted by word family words on the eggs.

Then they worked on the completing the puzzles.

When they finished the puzzle they then said the words on the puzzle. They would point to each word and when they have problems we would sound out each letter.

Amelia did the last activity of making the words with Appletters. She would sound out each letter and then say the word.
