Festive Fine Motor Pinecone Pom Pom Trees

 

These Festive Fine Motor Pinecone Pom Pom Trees (say that fast, 10 times!) are a super-easy, super-fun holiday craft for children to create cute festive decor while practicing their fine motor skills.

To decorate the tree, this activity requires you to hold the pinecone in one hand, and decorate with the other hand with a paintbrush and by stuffing little pompoms into the pinecone. Pinching and grasping is perfect for practicing fine motor skills and using both hands helps with bilateral coordination.

Materials:

  • Pine cones
  • (Non-toxic) acrylic paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Small pompoms
  • Pipe cleaners 


Instructions:

  1. Paint the pinecones with your choice of paint colour and set aside to dry (about 30 minutes or so).




  2. Once your pinecones are dry, wrap pipe cleaners around the pinecone. Make a topper for your tree if you’d like! We made a star topper. Check out the video below to learn how we did it.




  3. Stuff the pompoms into the pinecones, and you’re done!
