Perfect for morning tubs, early finishers, centers, or busy boxes, these Winter Holiday Fine Motor Task Boxes allow students to have fun while strengthening their fine motor skills.
This set includes ideas, instructions, and printable materials for fine motor task boxes with a December holiday theme (Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and New Year’s Eve). These simple activities are designed to promote the development of fine motor skills in young children, preparing them for success in school. Simple enough to be completed independently, these task boxes can be used in the mornings when children first come to school, as a quiet break later in the day, or by individual students as they finish their other work. Each task includes a printable label, picture directions, and other materials (such as work mats or task cards). Each activity requires the inclusion of other classroom items such as manipulatives or basic classroom supplies. Please see the included materials list.
Each of the five included fine motor tasks is designed to fit into a standard plastic pencil box. This allows for easy storage and organization. To prepare, print and laminate the activity label and instructions as well as the printable activity materials. Attach the activity label to the outside of the box and the illustrated instruction card inside the lid. Place all listed materials inside the box.
