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.

Who doesn't love ice cream? I made a 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.
As of 2022 this activity can be found in the member's section which is also where I have added an ice cream alphabet pick and cover activity.
Here are some butterfly puzzles for visual discrimination. I printed the patterns on cardstock paper and laminated them. I then cut along the dashed lines to make two halves.
In this activity children select a puzzle piece and then find the other matching half and put them together for form a butterfly. I made for different sets of twelve puzzles for a total of forty eight.
As of 2022 this activity can be found in the member's section which is also where I have added butterfly writing skills cards.
