Three easy DIY Halloween Small Gross Motor Skill (incorporating problem solving & numbers) Activities!

All you need is:
Black Card
White-Out (Tippex) Pen
Black Paint
Hole Puncher
Yarn
Lamination Machine  (Will help to make the cats and bats last longer) 
Matching Cat Legs-
We saw this on Niccola on Tuesday and loved it!
We used black card to cut out the cats and used the White-Out (Tippex) Pen to draw on their faces. We then painted the pegs black and used the White-Out (Tippex) Pen to draw the patterns on the pegs- EASY! The goal is to give the cats their legs, by matching the patterns on the pegs. This is a great problem solving activity for toddlers and pre-schoolers, while allowing them to practice their small gross motor skills.
Bat Number Wings-
Again we used black card to cut out the bats and used the White-Out (Tippex) Pen to draw on their faces and numbers. We then painted the pegs black and used the White-Out (Tippex) Pen to draw the numbers on. The Goal is to give the bat his wings, by matching the numbers on the bat with the ones on the pegs! This is a great number recognition activity for the kids, while (again) allowing them to practice their small gross motor skills.
Threading Bats-

One of the girls always makes great threading activities for he kids! For Halloween she used black card to cut out the bats and used the White-Out (Tippex) Pen to draw on their faces. She then used a hole puncher to make the holes and tied the yarn to one of the holes. This is a great activity for the kids to practice their small gross motor skills with- Threading, oldie, but goodie!
