I am loving being able to share fine motor skills activities with you through our Fine Motor Fridays series!  I'm a big fan of incorporating color into our activities, hence our Color Matching Velcro Tower.  Yep, I love velcro, colors, & clothespins -- OH MY!

Spring Fine Motor Skills Activity 


This matching bunny tails activity works on color recognition and fine motor skills.  I also think the tiny clothespins we used required extra hand-eye coordination and concentration.

What You Need:

Color Matching Bunny Tails


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.

Have your child match the color bunny tail to the corresponding color bunny.  However, allow for free play and have your child work on their fine motor skills by mix and matching bunny tails, too!
