Christmas Tree Sun Catcher
This Christmas fine motor activity is a fun craft for working on specific fine motor skills such as pincer grasp, in-hand manipulation, and precision, including distal mobility. While we used sequins for our Christmas tree suncatcher, you could use practically any crafting material, from tissue paper, to foam stickers, to pressed flowers or pine needles. Use your imagination and make it an open-ended craft for the kids.
How pretty are these sequins?? LOVE the colors and sparkles in this Christmas craft!
This was such a great fine motor activity for that Neat Pincer Grasp. To pick up the sequins from the table surface and place them onto the contact paper requires tip to tip grasp of the index finger and thumb. All of those sequins was a great workout! She did a ton of them, but we ended up sprinkling even more sequins on to the contact paper to give our sun catcher a REALLY sparkly look.
A little glue held the top triangle in place and our sun catcher was complete! Let us know if you do this craft. We love to see our projects come to life with your kids!
