Why Are Fine Motor Activities Important?
Fine motor skills are important for early childhood development because strong fine motor skills help kids feed themselves, grasp objects, and master handwriting. Your child will need to practice fine motor skills to master zipping, buttoning, and tying his shoes. Plus, accomplishing these tasks helps kids build self-esteem and confidence.
As preschoolers learn to hold a pencil properly and master pre-writing strokes, their fine motor skills will get even stronger! You can help kids practice these important skills at home with fun activities and printable spring fine motor worksheets too. Keep reading to discover five fine motor skills you can practice right at home while having fun this spring.
