Fine motor skills are the ability to make movements using the small muscles in our hands and wrists. Children rely on these skills to do key tasks in school and in everyday life. Support your child at home by doing activities such as:
- holding a pencil.
- maneuvering a pencil.
- scissor skills.
- pushing Lego blocks together (and pulling them apart)
- manipulating play dough.
- getting dressed with belts, buttons, zippers and snaps.
- using silverware while eating.
- opening and closing latches.
