Build a Santa Worksheet for Fine Motor Skills Practice
Building fine motor skills is a critical part of preschool development. Fine motor skills involve working with the small muscles to control movements in the hands, fingers, lips, and tongue. Developing these crucial skills helps preschoolers to eat, use cutlery, dress, tie their shoes, and learn to hold a pencil.
Strong fine motor skills ensure that your preschool students will be able to hold a pencil properly and form the shapes, numbers, and letters they’ll need to write well. My Build a Santa worksheet is a fun way to practice these critical fine motor skills during the holiday season.
This cute Christmas activity preschool worksheet is a great way to help your students practice counting and number identification while building fine motor skills this December.
You can use my printable number cards and beardless Santa to have kids build a beard for Santa with the right number of cotton balls. As they use their fingers or giant tweezers to grab cotton balls, they will develop strong finger muscles for better handwriting later.
