Fine Motor Color Matching Bunny Tails

By 7:00 AM , , ,

In last week's Fine Motor Fridays post  I shared that I am a bit obsessed with activities that use Velcro and color activities.  Well, today's bunny tails fine motor activity incorporates colors and yet another obsession: clothespins!  Velcro, colors, & clothespins-- OH MY!  Enjoy this color matching bunny tails activity.

Color Matching Activity for toddlers and preshoolers

Color Matching Bunny Tails is a simple and engaging activity.   It works on color matching and fine motor skills.  I also think the tiny clothespins we used required extra hand-eye coordination and concentration..

What You Need:
Scrapbook Paper of various colors
Small Clothespins
colored Pom Poms that match the scrapbook paper
Rabbit template
Glue
Scissors

Making the rabbits was the most time consuming part of the whole activity.  I found a rabbit template that I liked online and with a little free hand alterations, I came up with something I was happy with.

I traced my template onto cardboard and the scrapbook paper, and then cut them out. I used cardboard so that the bunnies would be a bit more sturdy while being used with little hands, although, if you have access to a laminator, you could skip the cardboard.

Next, glue your pom poms onto the clothespins.

Finally, invite your child to come explore, match colors, and work on his/her fine motor skills.

All three kiddos had their hands on this activity at the very same time, so needless to say I don't have very many good pictures as someone was always moving and/or in the way.  However, I think the pictures shown are pretty self-explanatory.  If you have any other questions, please let me know!
