We discussed gross motor skills activities in the last post. Now, as promised, here are four simple things you can do at home to help your children develop their fine motor skills.
You'll need: Playdough, clothespins, pasta and paper, along with scissors and a glue stick.
These exercises are designed to improve the fine motor skills, hand strength and dexterity of preschool and kindergarten children. They encourage the hand muscles to be used in a way that makes it easy to develop a correct pencil grasp. It is extremely important for young children to move through the different stages of pencil grasp development in order to learn to write.
