Super Fine Motor Activity for Busy Bags

For this weeks fine motor activity I thought I would concoct a busy bag that would be a bit of a challenge for my younger kids. My 5 year old loves to try these things out for me no matter what age I actually intended for them. I must admit he does great demonstration pictures!

This busy bag is for my 3 year old’s collection of busy bags. Check them all out here.

For this fine motor activity I used mini craft sticks and mini pegs along with neon glitter glue. (Many thanks to for supplying these for free for us to play with!)

I setup my 5 pegged craft sticks as I would like them then gently used the neon glitter glue to make the lines between the pegs and the numbers.blank fine motor activity

I love how this can be a color learning experience as well as counting practice while working on our fine motor skills!wet glitter pegs

We love simple busy bags!

Once the glitter glue was dried I transferred the activity to a bag for our busy bags storage bin.busy bags all ready

I love to use trays under all my busy bags as most of them have smaller objects. Trays also separate my 3 kids activities so they don’t get mixed and the kids don’t fight over which item belongs to who.
