Activities to help improve your child's fine motor skills

Strengthening fine motor skills is much easier if you have lots of ideas at hand! Compiled from the fine motor information and activity pages on my site, with some new and exclusive ideas thrown in, this e-book is ideal for parents and teachers.

The activities are aimed primarily at kids age 4 – 9 years, but can easily be used for older kids or adapted for children with disabilities who may need help strengthening fine motor skills. Please consult your child's therapist if you intend supplementing therapy with these activities.

This  e-book is intended to encourage your child's normal development. If you suspect your child has any delays, please seek a professional opinion.

Honesty Point

Although you will find most of this information for free if you work your way through my website, this e-book pulls it all together in an accessible format to facilitate strengthening fine motor skills in your child.

You can read, print out and work through the activities in the e-book, much more easily than trying to find and save pages from my website.

There are some activities and tips that are exclusive to my e-book and do not feature on my site.

How Were These Activities Chosen?

While working as a pediatric OT, I had years of experience working with kids in schools as well as in low-income communities. As a homeschooling mom, all 3 of my kids had fine motor “issues” arising at various stages in their development, so all of these activities have been tried and tested for strengthening fine motor skills at home.

I understand first hand the financial restraints that parents face, so I have chosen activities that are easily replicated at home and that mostly use inexpensive everyday resources.

As with all the activities on my website, real-life photos accompany the instructions.

"[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.

You've got a fantastic product here and it's very useful for people like me."

"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 fact, I already have!"

Why Is This E-Book Not Free?

If you have stumbled upon this page by accident, you may be wondering why my e-books are not free! I cannot afford to maintain a website of this calibre without a source of income.

I have kept the prices as low as possible, but if you genuinely cannot afford an e-book, and need more than the free resources I already offer on my site, then feel free to contact me to explain your situation.

I invite you to explore my activity pages for strengthening fine motor skills on my website if you need free information or a sample of what I offer.

None of the OT Mom E-Books serve as a substitute for an occupational therapy evaluation and treatment. Please read my E-Book Disclaimer for further details.
