2-Fine Motor Christmas Tree

 Christmas tree craft with using pins, Fine motor christmas trees.

One of my coworkers put these together for all the therapists to use this week and they are awesome.For higher level students,we had them attach buttons ornaments to a foam tree with push pins.For my lower level students,they just used the pushpins.
Pushpins are a great way to strengthen the tiny muscles in your hand used for daily fine motor tasks such as handwriting,buttoning,snaps,etc…
We also worked on bilateral coordination as their helper hand had to stabilize the tree while the other used the pin.

5-Handprint Christmas Tree Card

I love the simplicity of handprints,especially this small handprint which is filled with so many little crease marks.To turn the acrylic green handprint into a tree,I added a glittery gold star and a brown painted tree base.Once dry,the tree was mounted onto some natural card stock.
This is a perfect Christmas Card keepsake for loved ones.
