    Fine Motor Skills

    Toys for Fine Motor Skills: Toys that train the small muscles in the hands and fingers, building the strength, control, and precision that enable everyday life skills such as self-feeding, dressing and undressing, drawing, and writing.

    Part of the essential work of early childhood is learning to properly and precisely use the muscles in the hands and fingers--in other words, building fine motor skills. These skills, mastered during childhood, enable everyday life skills such as fastening, zipping, cutting, and writing. Parents may be familiar with the technical names for many fine-motor milestones, such as "pincer grasp" (the ability to grasp objects with the thumb and forefinger) and "tripod grasp" (the ability to hold a pencil properly). But even with no special background, you're likely to notice these abilities developing naturally through play. Nurture them with these toys and games--favorites of occupational therapists and teachers, and now collected here for you and your child!
