Fine motor skills involve the small muscles of the hands. Providing activities that hone a child’s fine motor development is essential for performing daily self-help skills and writing skills. Self-help skills include handling a spoon, buttoning, wiping nose, etc. The child’s fine motor ability is especially important when learning how to write and using various writing materials. These activities will also help your child practice focus and concentration and determine his hand dominance.
