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!

For a competitive kiddo, try timing him/her to see how fast they can match all the bunny tails to the correct bunny.

Hid the bunny tails around the house for a scavenger hunt.

Save the activity in a ziplock bag for road trips, appointments, dinner time, etc.!

    Ruth, I don't recall where I found the template. I just googled bunny images/ clipart and worked with one of them. Maybe check out pixabay for a template? If not, I'll try and trace my bunnies, scan them, and upload them... Not even sure that would work, but I could try if you don't find anything else. Let me know!

  15. What an adorable color matching activity!

  16. Thank you! I found some - I just think yours are the cutest!

  17. Thank you! I thought I replied yesterday, but I don't see it, so I probably didn't finish it. I did find some images like you said, but I still think yours is the cutest!!

    Oh thanks, Ruth! I'm glad you found something that would work. I just wasn't sure I'd be able to scan them-- never done it! But if I remember, I may try it!
