Fine Motor Busy Bag Activity

Fine Motor Busy Bag Activity for toddlers and kids

This Fine Motor Busy Bag involves matching colours by placing the peg on the matching coloured sponge square.  I was nearly going to call the activity, Peg-a-Sponge Colour Match but it is also so simple and a compact activity that will fit into a small busy bag.

What you will need?

Peg-a-Sponge Colour Match Busy Bag Activity

You will need coloured pegs which can be purchase at local art and crafts stores or alternatively you can colour wooden pegs with paint or food dye.  You will also need a sharp pair of scissors to cut the sponges into rectangles.

Let’s Play

Matching Colours Busy Bag Activity

Some Ideas:

  • Make patterns with the colours.
  • Encourage thumb and finger pinching when operating the peg.
  • Count the pegs and sponges out loud. How many blue pegs and how many green sponges?  Point at each item as you count out loud.
