200+ Fine Motor Skills Activities from The PLAY Group

fine motor skills
 

Fine motor skills are so important!  These skills are the coordination of small muscle movements in body parts such as the fingers, often in coordination with the eyes.  Daily practice is best to ensure children will have adequate motor control when it’s time to begin writing.  Fine motor skills practice should start with babies and continue as kids get older!  

We personally LOVE fine motor skills here at our house because we think most of the activities used for practice are lots of FUN!  To show you just how important it is, I’ve collected over 200 fine motor skills activities from The PLAY Group as part of our feature debut!
