Fine Motor Skills Christmas Tree Craft

My kiddos love a chance to create!  So why work on strengthening those fine motor skills while creating an adorable Christmas tree craft?  

Sounds like a winning activity to me!

There are so many fun ways to work on fine motor skills; I even co-authored TWO books full of fine motor skills ideas!  Check them out!

Our recent Christmas Tree Craft is full of opportunities for your child to work on finger dexterity, pinching, grasping, cutting, etc!

The idea is simple-- encourage your child to decorate his/ her own christmas tree!

Present the materials to your child along with a large green triangle that is to be the Christmas tree.

You could add pom poms, stickers, gift bows, and more to your supply list if you choose.  The materials to use for this activity are endless!

First, before your child decorates the tree-- he/she needs to snip the sides with scissors!  

Here is where your child will practice scissor skills.

After the tree has been snipped, next comes the garland.  

Encourage your child to pinch the ribbon and wrap it around the tree.

More pinching skills next as your child decorates the tree with sequins and glue!

Once your tree has been decorated, don't forget to add a star on top!

Cutting, wrapping, pinching, pasting, and more!  I just love how the Christmas trees turned out!  My 5 year old did the tree on the left, and my 3 year old surprised me with his scissor skills and created the tree on the left.
