Fine Motor Skills

[scroller w=”830″ h=”360″ settings_skin=”skin_apple”]

Fine motor skills are required for control of all the small muscles in the body, from winking to learning to control a pencil.

Children need many varied and fun activities to develop really good fine motor skills. It becomes very tedious if all the focus is on just one skill, e.g. writing. Conversely, writing is tedious and painful if fine motor skills are not properly developed.

Fine motor skills cannot develop properly until gross motor skills have been developed.
