Fine Motor Fun Deck®

Fine Motor Fun Deck has 52 double-sided cards and four connector cards (and, or, before, and after) with exercises and writing tasks that challenge overall hand use and coordination skills. The front side of the card has kid-friendly hand activities for strengthening and dexterity, and the card backs have wipe-off prewriting activities for reinforcing fine motor and visual motor skills. Activities include tracing and drawing simple lines and shapes, connect-the-dots, mazes, name writing, and finish-the-pictures. There are four additional cards that provide directions, game ideas, and exercises for hand skill development that require the use of simple classroom or home supplies. Cards (7" x 4") and four dry erase markers come in a sturdy box.

  1. Overall great product
    Quality

    This is a fun, useful product. I work with middle and high school students in a life skills program and they enjoy the cards. I love the ease and simplicity of the cards and the motor activities are fun warm ups. My only improvement would be to include more of the advanced skill cards, maybe as an add on deck or an alternate option. My students enjoy and benefit from these cards, but they are older and can handle a bit more of a challenge. Overall great product!

    I like to carry over the goals of the occupational therapist, and she will pick out the cards of the skills that need to be worked on. I incorporate them with my speech activities and the kids don't realize that I am working on their fine motor skills also.

    I just ordered this kit for my work as a school OT. I love the hand exercises, (and I add a few of my own,) and have used these exercises along with pencil olympics to present a program for typical first grade classes in the school!

    Quality

    I really like the versatility of these cards. We use these often during fine motor time and the kids really enjoy the activities. The kids like the hand exercises (arm wrestling, motorcycle etc) especially the boys in my class! One the other side of the card there are a variety of prewriting skill activities.

    I started using the Fine Motor product as a reinforcement activity with therapy program.Children enjoy imitating the gross motor actions, and correcting me if I do not imitate it correctly! Depending on skills and needs, the fine motor tasks allow for a variety of opportunities to encourage receptive and expressive vocabulary and langauge practice. Many have no opportunity to practice functional pre-writing tasks.These cards are great.There are also opportunities for choice making, (which marker to use,sensory input with cleaning the board and finally regardless of motor skill level, there's something about the great metal case, and for those who are able; hiding the markers under the cards, then working the latch all turns into a standard, anticipated routine! Parents love these. I've purchased 3 sets.

    As an itinerant school-based therapist who covers a large rural area, I don't have a lot of room in my car for supplies. These cards provide fun, quick and easy treatments without taking up a lot of space. I love them and so do my students. I can just grab these cards and GO!

    i purchased this to have activities for my daughter, who is on the autism spectrum, to do while she is listening to her iLs music therapy (45 minutes in one sitting). she really enjoys picking out her own cards and has favored the writing tasks, but more and more is choosing the exercises. very appropriate for what we need. thanks for your great products!

    I have had these cards a few weeks and used them in preschool speech groups as a good physical activity between other speech type activities. They keep most kids attention for a few turns.

    Like the exercises but wish there were more complex written exercises too. We also have the Pre-Handwriting Fun Deck and written exercises are somewhat similar.

    As an occupational therapist, I use the Fine Motor Fun Deck on a near daily basis! My kids can hardly wait to get started on the activities. This deck includes great hand exercises for strengthening & finger isolation as well as several opportunities to monitor prewriting strokes! This deck is exactly what it says FUN! I would recommend this to all OT's and anyone else working with FMC!!

    I recently bought this product and have already used it many times with GREAT results! Kids are motivated to follow the directions on each card and stay within the guidelines to teach them boundaries and visual motor skills. Plus the movement activities on the opposite side are fun and keep kids attention. Definitely a good buy!

  22. Quick Improvement
    Quality
    100%
    My son, who was not doing well in fine motor control, really loved this Fine Motor Fun Deck. He would do it at least once a day for almost a month. He really improved his skills during this time and it was nice to have something that would captivate his attention for fine-motor skill practice.
    The pens it comes with are nice to, because he would get extra practice while erasing the marks he has made with the small erasers on the back of each pen.
    I pulled out this product when friends with young children came over to give their children something to do. After they watching their children enjoy the drawing and tracing and other activities wanted decks of their own.
    The only thing that would be nice would be if the pens were sold separately as well as with the box because my son (as most children might) left the caps off occasionally and dried them out. I ended up buying other fine-point dry erase markers from somewhere else, but I couldn't find any with the handy eraser on the back.
