Here is another simple idea combining an apple tree with building fine motor skills, particularly with a child who is not crazy about doing art projects.
My Obstacle Course Station Activity: Do A Dot Apple Trees
I took a few sheets of white paper, drew an outline of a tree (I’m really good at these outlines aren’t I?! 🙂 )…
and set out red, green and yellow “dotters.”
Andrew could choose what color apples he was going to have on the tree and then use the dotters to push down, creating a circle, or “apple.”
Super simple, super cute (I finally have some of his “artwork” to hang up!!) and helps build hand muscles when grasping the dotter and while pushing it down to create the circle.
Engage, Encourage and Empower!
