I had this delicious smelling Peppermint Writing Tray. Once the kids were done tracing on them I set out cups of these really cute jingle bells along with a silver tongs. { Recipe for the peppermint writing tray in the above link}

Before starting to work with the fine motor tray, I let my 4 year old explore the bells. She had fun trying to pick them up using the tongs. She mixed the bells up and was generally having fun with the bells {Try making our jingle bell soup for some sensory play}

Then she simply traced the numbers { in our case} with her tiny fingers.

And used the tongs to pick up the bells. Then she tried tracing the number outline with the jingle bells. She tried various hand positions before she was comfortable with one position to hold
