FINE MOTOR ACTIVITIES IN THE PRESCHOOL YEARS
One of the most important ways we can help our children while playing with them at home or in a childcare/ classroom setting is through setting up simple activities that help to develop fine motor skills. Young children need to be able to hold and use scissors and pencils appropriately before using them in a classroom context. We cannot expect them to be able to write if they haven’t yet developed the strength needed in their hands and fingers.
There are plenty of easy ways to strengthen these muscles, practice co-ordination and develop hand: eye co-ordination using simple, everyday materials and a bit of creative fun!
