Figure Skating Activities for Tots & Preschoolers w/ Free Printables

This post contains affiliate links.

I am so excited about our new figure skating activities!  As a little girl I LOVED figure skating.  (I still do today.)  I will always remember going to various events, watching Christina Yamaguchi and Scott Hamilton live.  At one specific event I just happened to be sitting next to Christina Yamaguchi's mother.  It was quite a treat. 

Of course my parents had us all in figure skating lessons at a very young age.  One of my sisters continued for quite some time.  Princess and Dinomite are asking to learn how to skate now. We took them once, when they were very little.  They still remember it and feel they can do much better now.  Enough about that though, check out our fun classroom activities!

S is for Skate
Sunshine will use the "s" stamp and ink to fill in circles on the "S."

Figure Skating Sensory Play & Number Creations
Sunshine can either enjoy sensory play using the mirror and other fun materials, or she can practice creating numbers using the materials provided.  Either way, it's a super fun activity!

Figure Skating Tweeze & Sort
I found these cute little foam pieces at my local Rite Aid around Christmas time.  There are cute little hats and figure skates in blue and pink.  Sunshine will sort the pieces using her fingers or tweezers if she feels up to it.  (Her fine motor skills are quite developed.)  She can sort the pieces by color, or by item.

Figure Skate Glitter and Glue Activity
Sunshine has superior fine motor skills, however she lacks muscle strength in her hands and fingers.  It's funny how that happened, but I know a lot of it has to do with Sunshine's obsession and stemming with fine motor tasks.

In this activity she will squeeze the glue onto the figure skate, and then sprinkle glitter on it.  The activity will definitely be messy, but it should be loads of fun too.

Ice Play
We can't have a figure skating unit without an ice activity.  I froze foam snow flakes in containers of various shapes and sizes. She can play with the ice, stacking ,building, holding, etc.

Let's Get Ready to Skate!
Sunshine will practice putting on a tutu, winter hat, and gloves in preparation to go figure skating!  I can't wait for her to have fun with these activities!

  2. Hey dear, I also love to do skating, even now when I have a little son who is in Phoenix preschool. I will also start teaching him by next year and these days I am also showing him some printable of skates. He looks so excited when I share tips with him about skating.
