Crafty fun!


because everything starts with a seed.......

Fine motor skills are the last physical skills to develop. As we learn to control our big muscles (gross motor skills) we are able to move, to jump and dance.

Fine motor skills help with self-care – buttons, zippers, opening containers, and also colouring and writing.

As with all skills, the more we practice, the better we are at the tasks.

Crafts are a fun way for children to develop fine motor skills along with their imagination and problem-solving skills.

Have fun with your child as you do these two crafts together!
