We are in full Christmas craft mode around here with tons of Christmas fine motor activities…and this egg carton tree was a fine motor hit! We’re excited to share more Christmas crafts and activities that develop motor skills, like this festive egg carton craft.
For now, we’ve got a fun fine motor activity that the kids will love! This Fine Motor Christmas Tree activity and craft was a favorite of Little Guys’. He loved sticking the egg carton pieces through the skewer and seeing his Christmas tree grow! We do so many fine motor activities in our house and this one was just right for the Christmas season!
