JANUARY FINE MOTOR ACTIVITIES work on tracing, snipping, cutting, hole punching, rolling play dough, and more! These printables and low prep centers have a winter theme and are great for small group instruction at the Teacher Table. Use the January Fine Motor Activities in busy boxes, morning work tubs, and for Table Time, too.


  • TRACING PATHS - for practicing horizontal, diagonal, wavy, and zig zag lines. Includes 9 Color & 9 Black & White paths to trace.
  • TRACING CARDS are so much fun! These mini cards are perfect to assemble on a book ring and use at Table Time, in morning work tubs, or at the Writing Center. There are eight basic winter-themed shapes to trace. Kids absolutely love these and enjoy tracing them over & over!
  • SNIPPING STRIPS - helpful for young students who are just beginning to use scissors and haven’t practiced cutting very much. These printables allow young learners to “snip” short lines and CUT in a single motion. Makes a great filler for your sensory tub or use the snips for a glue lesson!
  • CUTTING PRACTICE SHEETS - super simple pages that get students CUTTING without becoming too tired or overwhelmed. Save them in a student portfolio to document progress, too!
  • HOLE PUNCH CARDS - strengthen small muscles with a hole punch! Ten wintery Hole Punch Cards are included. Use them for punching or lacing!
  • PRE-WRITING CARDS - Kids get fine motor practice making all the basic strokes of letters with these eight cards.
  • PLAY DOUGH MATS - Six snowflake Play Dough Mats for fine motor fun!
  • PLAY DOUGH PATHS - get students rolling play dough into long, thin strips and following a simple path. There are 12 Play Dough Paths (6 in color/6 in B&W). You can also use these mats with a dry erase marker for even more fine motor practice!
  • FINE MOTOR MATS - a favorite of students, teachers, and parents! Ten Fine Motor Mats are in this resource (5 Color / 5 Black & White). Use the color mats with pom-poms, small manipulatives, mini erasers, or playdough. Copy the B&W printable mats and use with dot markers, small stickers, and paints. An engaging way to work on fine motor skills!
