Fine motor skills are the small movements that occur in the hands, wrists, fingers, feet, toes, lips and tongue. Basic fine motor skill is a child's ability to use small muscles, specifically in the hands and fingers, to pick up small objects, hold a spoon, turn pages in a book or use a pencil or crayon. An ideal way to develop fine motor skills in babies, toddlers and preschoolers is by using threading toys, lacing toys and hand eye coordination games and activities.
At Early Years Resources we have sourced a fantastic and comprehensive range of fine motor skills toys to support this essential stage of development. The fine motor skills toys, games and activities developed to improve fine motor skills includes: twisting and turning activities, bead frames, mazes, beads, buttons and laces to thread, threading shapes and a variety of templates, boards and cards for lacing and threading.
This year we have developed an exciting range of exclusive weaving frames to excite and inspire, whilst developing fine motor skills. The pincer grip is essential for all fine motor skills toys and activities and for this we have created a one stop shop! We have included all time favourite fine motor skills toys such as hammer and tack packs, peg board and peg sets and design and drill kits, with a variety of tweezers, clips, scoops, chopsticks and fine motor games.
The manipulation of malleable materials like Play-Doh, plasticine, clay and dough are a wonderful way to develop fine motor skills and our tactile resources will thrill, we particularly love Kidfetti and Messy Play Goo, all perfect to get hands and fingers working. As well as our collection of fine motor skills toys, we also have a comprehensive selection of children’s construction toys available to buy online. Alongside this, a selection of jigsaws for children is also available for online purchase.
