How were these activities chosen?
While working as a pediatric OT, I had years of experience working with kids in private practice and local schools as well as in impoverished communities. Many of those children struggled with fine motor tasks, and these simple activities have been beneficial in helping them develop their fine motor skills.
In addition, as a homeschool mom of 3, I used (and continue to use) these activities with my own children!
As with all the activities on my website, real-life photos accompany the instructions.
How To Use This E-Book
Your e-book comes in a secure PDF format, which you can save on your device. You can choose whether to read it on your device, or print out the pages you want to have on hand. You can even just print out the goal and activity planners, and keep the rest of the download on your device for reference.
Depending on your child's skill level, the activities could be used by
preschoolers, kindergarten and early elementary children. I also
give suggestions for activities that would be suitable for older kids
who need some support in various areas of fine motor skills development.
I also have separate resources that specifically address scissor cutting skills and pencil grip, so please do take a look at those if you need more information specific to those topics.

"[OT Mom’s Fine Motor Activities] is exactly what a parent would want. I like to understand what I'm dealing with - I like to have as much information as possible: the whys, the whens, the wheres etc and not just the hows.

Homeschooling mother of 4
"My 5-year-old son has severe developmental delays on almost every level, and it has been recommended that he attend special schooling. As there is a waiting list, I decided to help my son in any way I could until such time he was placed, as I feel that early intervention is crucial. In my search for information, I found OT Mom's website and I am so very glad that I did!
OT Mom's Fine Motor e-book in particular is wonderful. It gives a wealth of information on how to help my son with strengthening fine motor skills. The lay-out is easy to follow and logical, with none of the sometimes complicated medical jargon other professionals use. Each activity is beautifully illustrated with colorful photographs and it is such fun trying these various activities with my son. I can already see an improvement in his skills and as a result his self-confidence is blossoming!
I cannot thank Tracey enough for making her e-book available to all parents and I would hugely recommend to anyone who might need it...in fact, I already have!"
