Product Description
Keep those little minds growing all spring just like the flowers in a garden!  Our printable GARDEN Fine Motor Busy Bins for spring are perfect for your favorite preschool, pre-k, and kindergarten kiddos.

The GARDEN Fine Motor Busy Bins include 12 printable activities that offer fine motor practice for little hands.  You need this set!  Little hands need lots of fine motor practice to be ready to cut with scissors, hold pencils the correct way, buttoning jackets, opening lunch boxes, and tying shoes!

Each busy bin includes a direction and supplies page, and a label for your bin. They are set up as completely independent morning work tub activities for pre-k.  The busy bins are also perfect to use with younger preschoolers during circle and small group time.

----> The garden fine motor busy bins for spring are the 15th set in our ENDLESS Themed Fine Motor Busy Bins Bundle.  The bundle is the way to go!

Print and prep the fine motor busy bins, and store them in small storage containers with lids (mine are from Walmart - some teachers use ziplock or colorful buckets). Switch out the 12 activities each time you switch themes.  Yep, the idea is genius!

What is a busy bin exactly?

A busy bin is similar to a busy bag activity.  You put the activity together and store it in a bin to be used over and over again. Busy bins are reusable learning activities – prep once and play forever!

Each fine motor busy bin activity comes with an instruction page and a label for your bin.
