I’ll be expanding on fine motor development, as promised! First off, like gross motor development, fine motor skills improve over the years. Fine motor skills refer to the movements made with smaller muscles by using our hands. Children learn to use their hands to do fun physical activities like knitting, drawing, painting or even playing a musical instrument. Through these activities children acquire hand eye coordination and their hand writing and drawings improve dramatically. Children develop hand-eye coordination and their handwriting and drawing improves dramatically. Cool right? So, I urge you to encourage your children do lots of activities with their hands to develop their fine motor skills.
See you next time! 🙂
