Kids love animals! Grab these free printable pond animal crafts and help your student boost fine motor skills while generating interest in the animals who live in a pond habitat.

What Are the Benefits of Using the Pond Animal Crafts?

When your student works on the animal crafts, she is experiencing multiple benefits.

Coloring, cutting, and gluing build fine motor muscles that will be used for other tasks such as handwriting.

Learning to use scissors helps a child develop focus as they look at the paper and determine where to cut. Scissor skills also boost two-handed coordination.

Your student will use visual discrimination skills to piece the animal together in the right sequence.

When your student finishes building an animal, he will develop confidence that she can complete a task.
