Developing Fine Motor Skills

Between the ages of 3 and 5 children usually demonstrate rapid gains in fine motor manipulation, finger dexterity and tool use. Development of fine motor skills takes time, patience and practice.

Activities that assist with development of the muscles required to manipulate a pencil include: threading beads, using playdough, cutting with scissors, doing buttons, and painting and drawing with different size brushes, pencils and crayons.
