Fine Motor Warm Up Songs

Baby Shark Dance is  one that I used to do when I was a small child at camp! It is easy to learn the hand movements. This works on finger, arm and shoulder strength. This is a great way to get your hands warm up for fine motor tasks.

Fine motor development | Playdough song | If you’re happy and you know it is a song that is based on “If you’re happy and you know it”. Children will use playdough to work on finger movements to warm up their hands.

Crocodile Snap Pencil Grasp Childrens Song is an absolutely amazing song for children who are learning how to hold a pencil and to warm up fingers for fine motor activities. This song has repitition (wiggle fingers, pinch fingers) so it is great practice. This is also a catchy tune that is a great reminder when you are practicing how to hold a pencil
.

Animal finger warm up focuses on making your hands do different actions like animals (clap like a seal). The exercises show on the screen for about 10 seconds at a time, so it is perfect for students who may need a little bit of extra time with the movements.

Animal Fingers | Fingerplay Song for Kids | Jack Hartmann is another fun fine motor warm up song. Although this has a similar name to the other song, this is a little bit different.
