Building your little one’s motor skill can be quite a task as it requires a lot of practice and patience. Remember to encourage your child at every step as he/she goes on to learn new movements to complete simple tasks like holding a pencil, writing, picking up food, walking etc.
Here are some tips from moms on how you can help your little one in developing motor skills…
Giving him lots of objects and textures to handle and explore will strengthen his hands and fingers and make them more sensitive and dexterous. Toys that boost fine motor development include blocks (all shapes, sizes, and textures), balls (again, a variety), stuffed animals and dolls, activity boards, and household items (the real thing or toy versions) such as kitchen utensils, remote controls, and keys. Another super skill builder: Finger-plays — songs with accompanying hand motions — such as “Pat-a-Cake” or “Itsy-Bitsy Spider.”-Merin Vineeth
