How to Play the Cat Fine Motor Game

Directions for Flip and Fill from Your Therapy Source
  1. Print each player a cat board.
  2. Decide how you will fill the 20 circles on the cat: small balls of clay, tongs with pom-poms, dot markers, color with crayons, pennies or bingo chips.
  3. Flip a coin.  If it lands on heads, fill in two circles.  If it lands on tails, fill in one circle.
  4. The first player to fill in all 20 circles on the cat is the winner.

Ways to Modify the Cat Fine Motor Game

Want to finish in a hurry?  Use a die instead of flipping a coin.

Want to add in letter matching?  Write some letters in the circle.  The child can match letter beads and place them in the circles.

Want to make it easier?  Use larger manipulatives like colored plastic teddy bears or unifix cubes.
