Fine motor activities are essential to help your child develop the fine motor skills needed for good handwriting.

On this page, you will find links to a range of photographed activity ideas on my site, and also articles to help you understand the importance of these skills.

Why Use Activities?

Kids with poor fine motor skills often dread paper-and-pencil activities. Using fun activities will give your child a sense of achievement while helping to develop essential handwriting skills.

And if your child hates writing, drawing and coloring, don’t worry, there is not a pencil or a crayon in sight for most of these fun learning activities!

So let your child improve fine motor skills without forcing the use of a pencil, and you may see some improvement in handwriting ability.
