These fine motor activities are perfect for use during fall and autumn. They help kids to learn about numbers and colors.
1. Fall Roll and Cover (1 to 6)
Preparation – Print one game mat for each player. There are two styles to choose from – owls or apples. You will also need dice and counters.
How to play – Roll the dice and then cover the number you roll with a counter. The first player to cover all of the numbers on their mat wins.
These fine motor activities are fun to use during math small group work.
2. Fall Counting Apples
Preparation – Print and laminate the apples for added durability. Cut out the apples and attach each one to the end of a chenille stick. Place something the children can thread such as pony beads or cut up straws in a basket.
How to play – Choose an apple stick and read the number. Count that amount of beads ( or straws) on to the chenille stick.
These fine motor activities are fun to add to math centers.
3. Fall Color Matching Mats
Preparation – Print the color matching mats for added durability. Fill a basket with red, orange, green, brown and yellow pom poms. You’ll also need something to pick up the pom poms such as tweezers or tongs.
How to play – Choose a mat and name the color. Use the tweezers to pick up pom poms with the matching color and then place them on the tree.
Extension activity – You can also use these mats to sort real autumn leaves. Simply lay the mats out and place all the red leaves on the red mat, green leaves on the green mat and so on.
