Fine Motor Activities – Marble Balancing


Activity: Using the finger tips to carefully balance marbles is a great activity to develop fine motor skills for toddlers. Using play dough is probably the quickest and easiest base to place the golf tees into.

Differentiation: Try using egg cups to start with and play around with the size of ball that your child has to balance. Timing older children and challenging them to balance as many marbles in a certain time limit is a fun activity that also lends itself to counting practice.
