- Roll a die and hop that number of times, following directions on the direction sheets.
- Use the directional lily pads to make a froggy motor pathway.
- Use the directional lily pads for sequencing and motor planning: Hold up cards and play the classic game, Simon- kids can do the action and recall each movement as more movements are added to a sequence.
- Come up with your own fun movement ideas
Feed the Frog Play Dough/Fine Motor Skills Mat
Roll a die. Count the number of dots. These are the “number of flies that the frog will eat. Tear up that number of small pieces of paper and crumble them into small balls. Place each “fly” along the frog’s tongue. Extend the activity to work on hand strength, finger isolation, in-hand manipulation, and more.

3 Fine Motor Activity Mazes

Froggy I Spy Page
Build visual perceptual skills and find all of the hidden frog and toad images in this fun I Spy page. Then write in the answers into the given spaces for number formation practice.
Froggy Says Motor Skills Cards
Cut out the movement activity cards for this gross motor activity, using the classic “Simon Says” game with a frog theme! Let’s play Froggy Says! Cut up the cards below and shuffle the cards. Some of the cards say “Froggy Says” and some do not. This game is the same as the classic Simon Says movement game. One player is the Froggy. One player is “Froggy”. They pull a card and read the instructions. Everyone else has to follow the directions and do what Froggy says. If Froggy doesn’t say “Froggy says”, then anyone that does that movement is “out” for that round. Includes cards with gross motor actions, with both “froggy says” and without the “froggy” options.
Frog Hop Fine Motor Paths
Use these 3 fine motor frog hop activities to build fine motor precision, eye-hand coordination, in-hand manipulation skills, and dexterity. Use the fine motor strips for building dexterity and in-hand manipulation skills. Hold several coins, mini erasers or other small objects. Place one item on each lily pad along the path. Extend the activity:
- Slide into a page protector sheet and use a dry erase marker to place a mark on each lily pad.
- Stick stickers along the path.
- Turn a coin over for each lily pad.
Frog Letter Cards
Cut out these A-Z letter cards and get ready to spell with hands-on, multisensory learning opportunities. Cut out each card. Position the frog friends to spell words. Copy the words, working on letter formation. Use these frog letter friends to “hop” from one letter to another when sounding out words phonetically. Hop slowly from letter to letter to stretch out words. Try using a mini frog figure to hop from letter to letter.
1-20 Fine Motor Number Mats
Use the 1-20 number mat pages to build eye-hand coordination, fine motor strength, and dexterity. Kids can use tweezers or tongs to move small items onto the ten frame mats. Then, practice writing the number and building the number with play dough, counting blocks, or LEGO.
