Learning Activities - Fine Motor

Fine motor activities aim to develop the strength and coordination of the muscles in the hands and fingers. Good fine motor skills are essential in order to complete a range of functional routines, for example using cutlery; buttoning and tying  as well as furthering our development in writing. At Willow Dene we strive to support children’s fine motor skills as a skill for life.

Here are some fine motor activities that our children have enjoyed and that you could try:

Manipulating Playdough

Collecting Worms

Duck Races

Treasure

Gems

Hungry Monster

Pipettes
