Developing Fine Motor

Developing Fine Motor Control

 

There are many activities that help to develop fine motor control that can be tried at home.

 

Some ideas….

 

Squeezing clothes pegs open and closed

Using children’s chop-sticks and tweezers to pick up small items

Exploring with playdough

Opening and closing screw caps

Playing with water squirt toys

Squeezing and releasing sponges and cloths

Zipping and unzipping

Buckling and unbuckling

Drawing, painting, and colouring

Manipulating buttons

Putting small objects together

Jigsaws

Using scissors

Manipulating small objects such as coins

Picking up and holding onto small objects

Playing ‘Tiddlywinks’

Using locks and keys

Turning things over – snap games, matching pairs or turning pages of a book

Threading beads

 

 

Varying activities and making them fun is important to keep children interested and keen to practise. Anything that makes the fingers, hands and wrists move are excellent things to try!

 

If you are helping your child to write their name at home, please use lower case formatting.

 

Happy writing!
