My son just turned 4 years old last month. I feel he has trouble with some fine motor skills (writing, coloring, grasping, playing with play-doh, etc.) I am looking forward to trying many of the activities I have read about on this website to try and develop those skills. I really want him to be as prepped as possible for Kindergarten.
One question I have is how to know if your child is left or right-handed. When should it be clear? He often seems to favor using his left-hand, but sometimes does switch off. I realize some tools work better for left-handers especially as far as cutting goes, but if I am not sure if he is right or left handed, how would I tell which side to work with???
Thank you for this wonderful website....very helpful!!!
