After our fun round up of 15 Indoor Gross Motor Activities for Toddlers I couldn’t resist a round up of Toddler Fine Motor Activities too.
The term “Fine Motor Skills” refers to the small movements we make with our hands which enable us to do day to day things, such as holding a pencil or using cutlery. Developing these skills is important, as they enable toddlers to build the co-ordination and strength they will require to further their learning in writing, drawing and hand eye co-ordination. Toddlers can build on these skills through some awesome play activities, some of which I have included below.
