Spring has sprung here in Charlotte. When I’m not in the yard, I have been searching Pinterest for great fine motor activities. My favorite one I found today is Q-tip painting. Children can use a Q-tip to paint on anything and with anything. Water, paint, glitter glue, the options are endless. Holding a Q-tip helps develop the pincher grasp in one’s fingers. Here is new twist to Q-tip paint, you can have the child put the paint on the circle drawn within the picture. This activity helps with distal control. Here are a few templates that I found made by Tova Stulbergeron, on the website www.therapyfunzone.com. You can also draw your own or put circles into a coloring book page. Share with us a fine motor activity you use!
