Fine Motor Skills


Previously his children had enjoyed focusing upon developing their fine motor skills by using a screwdriver to attach shapes to a board and whilst doing this they were strengthening their finger muscles and increasing their control and coordination. Which, of course, later leads to being able to write effectively and enjoyably when it comes to big school and the wider world beyond.

So Stephen helped his children continue with this focus of strengthening little hands and developing control and coordination by setting up an activity whereby they could use elastic bands to stretch and pull, with their fingers, to create patterns by placing the bands over the hooks on the board. This was then taken to another dimension when little fingers had to get to work to free the trapped superheroes!!!

Lots of fun was certainly had and lots of focus, attention and hand/eye coordination was observed as little fingers really got working and got stronger and stronger and stronger!! Xxxx
