Fine motor Activities

Fine motor Activities

Whether there is a specific medical reason or late development, a child who struggles with fine motor control can become frustrated, angry or suffer low self-esteem. They may tire quicker than their peers when attempting fine motor tasks. Some of the tasks may include, resisting drawing and writing, having trouble holding a pencil correctly, slow handwriting and struggling to use scissors.These activities are designed to be fun and improve fine motor skills. I found that having a small box of tricks to draw upon for quick 10 minutes interventions worked well, can be used 1:1 or as a small group.
