Tape is such a fun and simple way to create engaging activities for kids. Check out these awesome tape collage fine motor skills worksheets!
If you’ve been following along with us at The Inspired Treehouse for awhile, you know about our love of tape as a therapy tool. It’s one of our favorite props for activities because you can use it for both fine motor skill development (grasp, dexterity, hand strength) and gross motor skill development (jumping, balance, coordination).
Tape fits easily in your therapy bag for quick, on-the-go activities AND, it can make for a great outfit accessory if you wear a roll of it around your wrist like a bracelet like I do because you use it so often. :)
When Lauren came up with the idea of making tape collage fine motor skills worksheets, I was 100% on board. I couldn’t wait to make these cute, colorful templates that could be used in the classroom, in therapy sessions, or even at home on a rainy day!
Fine Motor Skills Worksheets: Tape Collages
This free printable pack comes with 6 pages of tape collage templates – perfect to work into your rotation of fine motor skills worksheets in the classroom, therapy room, or home!
All you need is the free printable pack of tape collage fine motor skills worksheets and a few rolls of colorful tape (see options below)!
You can use these tape collage fine motor skills worksheets in a couple of different ways depending on the skills you want to address and the ability level of the child you’re working with.
1 || Cut the tape pieces for the child.
2 || Have the child tear his/her own pieces of tape.
3 || Work some cutting practice into the mix and have the child cut pieces of tape with scissors.
4 || Place the pieces of tape on different surfaces to work on various gross motor skills.
-Place the tape collage template at the bottom of a set of stairs and stick the small pieces of tape at the top of the stairs. Have the child climb up and down the stairs to retrieve the tape pieces and place them onto the template.
-Place the tape pieces on a wall or other vertical surface. Tape the tape collage template on the wall near the tape pieces and have the child get to work! So many benefits to working on vertical surfaces!
-Place the tape pieces on the floor on one side of a therapy ball or bolster. Place the tape collage template on the floor on the other side. Have the child pick up the tape pieces one at a time and then get into prone over the ball/bolster, weight bearing on their hands.
