Simple Fine-Motor Activity for Preschoolers

Here’s a simple fine-motor activity for preschoolers that is easy to set up, and develops important “pincher grasp” muscles. All you need is a basket and some clothes pins!

Simple Fine-Motor Activity for Preschoolers

Invite your child to attach the clothes pins to the outside of the basket!

Other options:

  • Count the clothes pins as your child attaches them to the outside of the basket.
  • Number each clothes pin, then invite your child to sort and attach them in order.
  • Use colored clothes pins to create patterns and invite your child to extend the pattern around the basket.
