Fine Motor Skills Activities

These fine motor skill activities are a great help when it comes to developing your child's writing. These activites focus on motor skill development by improving the muscles in the fingers and hands, strengthening hand grip, and developing wrist movement. By doing all of those things, your child will be better prepared to hold a pencil for long periods of time, and learn to write with strong and controlled muscles. These fine motor skills activities include art projects like painting and tissue paper bouquets, to science projects like silly putty, and even to games like water relay! Your kids are sure to have a blast with these activities, and will be developing important skills without even knowing it.
