Counting Straws Fine Motor Game

Estimated read time 1 min read

It’s FRIDAY!!! That means I have a fine motor idea for you. 😀 Take a look at my fine motor archives for more ideas.

I have been waiting to try this activity with the kids for 2 weeks and for the last 2 weeks I have had miserable kids! I had all four kids sick PLUS myself. It wasn’t pretty. I even had the diffuser running 24/7 to help us out with some essential oils.

This activity is SUPER EASY! The aim is to get some fine motor in, some counting AND color sequencing!

You will need

  • 5 festive straws
  • Stars or other foam stickers in color co-ordinated groupings 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5.

Let your little one have some fun peeling and sticking!

My 3 year old loves to hold these up kind of like a wand then sort them out in their order again (counting 1 -5). I do think that she enjoyed the peeling and sticking process the most for this activity though.
