Educational Learning Toys & Games for Fine Motor Development
Fine motor skills are important for so many tasks including independent eating, getting dressed, writing, using a computer and hygiene. Kids begin to develop fine motor skills even before they reach three months of age, when they learn to bring a hand toward the mouth or track mom's movement with their eyes. Over the course of roughly six years, children continue to learn many additional fine motor skills, which ultimately allow them to be more proficient and independent in a variety of tasks both at home and at school.
Although as adults, we generally think of fine motor skills as natural and subconscious, the fine movements required to dial a phone or brush our teeth are in fact very complex because they require many coordinated efforts. Fine motor skills aren't black and white and there's no hard and fast rule that helps kids develop them. Instead, you can think of them as a constantly moving target that requires a lot of tuning.
We carry a wide range of products for kids of all ages and abilities, including children who struggle with coordination development, learning disorders and more. Our products can be used in an occupational therapy setting, in school or at home.
Fine motor development relies heavily on a variety of other skills, including gross motor development, so be sure to check out our selection of products in this category as well.
