Our fun Easter Fine Motor and Hand Strength activity packet is a great resource dedicated to helping kids with their handwriting development.

This easy-to-use activity packet gives kids the opportunity to sharpen their tracing skills, fine motor growth and hand strength for letter and word structure.

Many kids who struggle with letter directionality or who tire easily may need activities to support these areas of development for better handwriting skills.

Parents, therapists and educators can use the Easter activity packet to get kids involved in handwriting activities without it seeming like work.

These activities are meant to be playful and challenging for young learners who require additional handwriting support or who are just getting started with their handwriting skills.


Fine Motor and Hand Strength

We often concentrate on how a child holds a pencil and how they write their letters on the page. However, what we sometimes forget is to build the skills surrounding those areas that support pencil grip, pencil pressure and letter formation.

Providing kids with activities that prepare them for handwriting are as equally important as activities that encourage handwriting itself.

Fine motor activities help kids use the smaller muscles in their fingers to pick up small items, hold a pencil, tie shoes and eventually write words across the page.

Giving kids more activities that hone a child’s hand strength is also needed for the support of a child’s handwriting skills. Kids who tire easily of writing or who don’t apply enough pressure to their pencil may need hand strengthening activities to help them become stronger writers.

If a child struggles to…

  • Copy notes
  • Write for long periods of time
  • Hold their pencil correctly
  • Use correct strokes or curves
  • Feel how letters are written
  • Tie shoes and put on socks

…It could be a sign the child needs additional help developing their fine motor skills and hand strength.

Free Easter Fine Motor and Hand Strength Activity Packet

The Easter Fine Motor and Hand Strength activity packet was designed to give parents, therapists and educators more ideas to help kids strengthen their fine motor skills and hand strength for handwriting development.

Many of these activities encourage tracing so that children develop muscle memory and impulse control for attention and focus. Activities, like the ones in this activity packet, prepare kids for writing short simple words and letters without thinking about it.  

These exercises will strengthen the child’s ability to work with their hands, learn strokes and curves, become familiar with writing patterns and use their small muscles to manipulate and use writing tools.

An older child may even benefit from the activity packet if they struggle on basic concepts or if their skills are delayed. The free PDF activity packet is a digital copy only and can be saved directly to your computer or hard drive.

After the activity packet is saved, use the digital copy to print and re-print copies so the child can perform the exercises multiple times. Or, the activity packet can be used for multiple students.
