Early Childhood Push Pinning

Pin punching is a fine motor activity and is easy to do at home. Starting with a piece of construction paper, students trace around a shape or draw a simple picture. Then, using a push pin, students carefully create perforation around the shape by making small holes along the line.

The student can then gently tear out their shape. The closer together and more accurate the punching, the easier it is to remove the shape creating a built in control of error and motivation for careful work.

Visual motor coordination is developed by keeping holes close together along the line. Holding the small push pin builds strength in the hands for future fine motor development.
