I made an ice cream activity to work on fine motor development. The patterns can be printed on cardstock paper or regular paper depending on which pattern you choose and the the materials you use to fill in the dots.
You can use beads ... sequins ... paint ... glue ... markers etc. Q-tips can be used to dip in the paint or glue and then applied to the dots on the patterns. Remember to use close supervision when working with children under three and those still in the stages of putting small items in their mouths.
I've included both black and white patterns as well as color and also two different sizes. There are also options for scissors skills and word tracing.

With so many of us still under lockdown and following social distancing rules I have decided to extend my membership special!!

The free membership printable this week is Ice Cream Number Pick and Cover for number recognition and fine motor development. I printed the patterns on cardstock paper ... cut them out and then laminated them.
I made both 0-20 and 0-30 number mats along with number cards. In this activity the children pick a number card and then cover up the same number on the ice cream mat. Play continues until all numbers have been covered. You can use glass beads ... playdough ... pom poms ... buttons for the cover-ups. I have also included cover-up circles.
You can grab the patterns below for free until Sunday June 21st ... after that date they will only be available in the member's section which is also where I have added an ice cream alphabet pick and cover activity.

The free membership printable this week is space alphabet match and clip which is great for letter recognition and fine motor development skills. I printed the patterns on cardstock paper ... cut them out and laminated them.
In this activity children match the space rockets and moons with the same letter and clip them together with plastic coated paper clips or clothespins. You can also do a letter sequence by having the children put the space rockets in alphabetical order and placing the matching moons on top.
You can grab the patterns for free until Sunday May 31st ... after that they will only be available in the member's section which is also where I have added a space number match and clip.
