These Christmas fine motor skills activities are perfect for not just your preschooler or kindergartner but also your older kids too. Keep reading and you will find out how.
Today is Day 4 of the 12 Days of Christmas Activities and Christmas Worksheets! Throughout this series I will be sharing ideas and resources to help you teach your kids through the Christmas season. I know that homeschooling with Christmas drawing near can seem almost impossible and I am here to make this stress free.
Every day for 12 days I will share a printable or activity that solidifies or teaches a concept. All you have to do in addition is to fill in the subject gaps. When I share a math printable, you then add something grammar/spelling/writing related.

The Different Sections of the CHRISTMAS FINE MOTOR SKILLS ACTIVITIES
Section 1: Tracing Worksheets
This section has 2 pages in all. You can either have your child do both pages at the same time or have them work on a page at a time- you decide what’s best for your kids.
Section 2: Dot to Dot
My kids love dot to dot activities and I did too as a kid. This page allows your kids to not only practice their fine motor skills but also counting skills and eye tracking.
Section 3: Maze
If you think your kids can handle this activity then feel free to have them do this. The beginning and the ending are clearly marked.
Saving Paper and Resources for the Christmas Fine Motor Skills Activities
I am the first to admit that I LOVE paper- the brighter and heavier it is the better. If you would love to save paper, simply print the pages and either:
- laminate the pages
- slip the pages into protective sheets
Doing this allows your kids to reuse the sheets and provides ample practice. Simply hand them a few dry erase markers or dry erase crayons. I have also found that using rubbing alcohol cleans the pages quite nicely.
I have added a list of the paper and dry erase markers that my kids love to use.
