I made a playdough color match to work on color recognition and fine motor skills. I cut strips of cardstock paper ... put them in a laminating pouch and sprinkled large gold glitter on the strips and then laminated them.
I set out the strips along with matching color playdough and the children rolled the playdough into balls and then put the playdough on the same color strips.
I made twelve different color strips and put masking tape on the back of the so they would stay in place and not slide around. If you do not have colored cardstock paper you can also use construction paper.
The free membership printable this week is Puppy Number Recognition Puzzles for number recognition and fine motor development. I printed the patterns on cardstock paper ... laminated them and cut along the lines.
I mixed up the puzzle strips and set them out. Children put them in numerical order. I made numbers 1-10 ... 11-20 ... and 21-30 puzzles.
You can grab the patterns below for free until Sunday March 11th ... after that date they will only be available in the member's section which is also where I have added a puppy roll count and cover activity.

I made a set of shape and line cards that can be used for fine motor activities. We used small buttons but you can also use pom poms ... glass beads ... or playdough.
I printed the cards on cardstock paper ... cut them out and laminated them. In this activity children traced the shape and line cards with buttons. We also rolled playdough and used that on the shape cards as well. You can see a video of this activity below.
