Build your own custom fine motor task boxes bundle by choosing from 15 sets of printable activities!
This bundle of up to 103 fine motor activities targets the development of fine motor skills in preschool and kindergarten students while also fostering independence and excitement about school. Fine motor skills in young children are a predictor of academic success, but many students begin school struggling in this area. Perfect for morning tubs, early finishers, or busy boxes, these fine motor task boxes build finger strength, dexterity, coordination, and academic skills while giving you time to take care of some of the many other tasks that demand your attention in the classroom!
What will your custom fine motor task boxes bundle include?
This bundle includes ideas and printable materials for up to 103 fine motor task boxes. Each task is designed to fit into a standard plastic pencil box and includes a printable label, picture directions, and other materials (such as work mats or task cards). These tasks are designed to be used with a variety of common classroom manipulatives. No physical materials are included in this bundle. You will need to download the printable materials, gather materials, and assemble the boxes on your own.
In the included sets, you’ll find pattern block and connecting cube templates, playdough task cards, spinner and dice games, linking activities and tweezer activities, and so much more!
This bundle includes two resources that only contain material pulled from the other Fine Motor Task Boxes sets. The Cube Building Cards and Pattern Blocks Cards sets are included as optional additions to the bundle for convenience but they are not factored into the activity count as they are duplicates of activities included in other sets.
When putting your custom fine motor task boxes bundle together, you will choose from these sets:
How to Use These Activities:
Once you get your students started with these task boxes with some initial instructions, they will be up and running and ready for independence! These simple fine motor activities can be used in the mornings when children first come to school, as a quiet break later in the day, or by individual students as they finish their other work. These boxes are perfect to grab during any of the times that you need students to be independent, engaged, and productive!
To prepare these fine motor task boxes, print and laminate the activity labels and instructions as well as the printable activity materials. Attach each activity label to the outside of a box and the illustrated instruction card inside the lid. (You can use Velcro to attach the labels if you want to have the flexibility to easily switch activities throughout the year!) Place all listed materials inside the box. Each activity requires the inclusion of other classroom items such as manipulatives or basic classroom supplies.
What Teachers Are Saying:
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “These are AMAZING for my students and super easy to assemble! I️ have them in pencil boxes and my students do independent work with them and love doing their fine motor task boxes!” – Jennifer T.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “This is such an amazing package! It covers many domains and there is seriously an activity for every student! They were so engaged and really loved how independent each activity was! Thank you so much for putting this together – definitely highly recommend it to ANYONE!” –Christina C.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “These task boxes are such a lifesaver in my Kindergarten classroom! I use them daily at the beginning of the year as a center students visit. I love how I can also use them as “early finisher” activities at any point in our day! It takes a bit of prep, but the product makes that easy! You just print, laminate, tape the instructions onto the box, and get the supplies! Definitely worth it in my opinion! Fine motor skills are so important, so I love how these activities build on those essential skills! The kids have a blast with these! Thanks for a great product!” –Stephanie P.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Whenever my students would finish their work at their rotations, they would always ask me what they could do now. These busy box tasks were the perfect solution!! Once the students finished the work at their rotations, they knew they could grab one of these boxes and do the activity inside. This cut down on my small reading group interruptions. The best part is that they could complete these activities independently.” –Kenda M.
Why practice fine motor skills?
Research shows that well-developed fine motor skills in young children are a predictor of academic success. It makes sense that children with dexterity and hand strength would be more successful in a classroom that requires writing and drawing, but researchers have found that the connection goes beyond that. Through a series of studies using longitudinal data that tracked students from kindergarten through eighth grade, researchers determined that strong fine motor skills in the early years of life help form connections in the brain that lead to greater academic achievement throughout the school years.
Unfortunately, advances in technology have led many families away from traditional activities that promote fine motor development. The time that many children spend using computers, tablets, and smartphones is time that they are not spending building, drawing, and manipulating objects in the world around them. Many children are beginning school with a deficit of motor skills, both gross and fine. It is important for schools to give children many opportunities to build those skills.
