Colorful fine motor play in preschool

The children have been exploring this wonderful color matching game….

The game board was colored with markers then laminated and the clothespins were painted to match each color…

The children simply used their fingers to squeeze a clothespin and clip it on to the matching color on the wheel…

It is a wonderful way to work with color recognition, matching, counting, and fine motor skills. One little boy even discovered that the clothespins could be hooked together to make animals…

And this child discovered that he could make AB patterns with the clothespins…

We also discovered that we could put more than one clothespin on each color then count them!

Leave it to the kids to find 101 uses for any type of manipulative set out for their play!
