Let’s Talk:Your Child’s Fine Motor Skills

Fine motor skill (dexterity) is the coordination of muscles to perform the basic movement that helps a kid perform his everyday task. From holding a pencil to spoon or opening the lunch box, these muscles help the child to use and grasp the objects.

My little one has some difficulties in holding a pencil, I am working on his grasp and writing skills(that’s prescribed by an Occupational specialist and his teachers ) nowadays and it works.I thought I should share some easy techniques that can be done easily at home.

Let’s discuss!!

Working with Scissors:

If I say this is the best purchase I have made so far, it’s so true.I know it’s quite expensive but If you have just a kid craft scissor, it really helps.

Get some printouts or draw the shapes, like a square or round and ask your child to follow the line.I bought this revolving scissor caddy, I shared Here.Bilal loves using them so much and it helps him strengthening his muscles.

Pencil Grips:

I bought these pencil grips from ” wish.com”. My order came pretty early than expected.It comes in a set of three.You can also find some pencil grips at Scholar’s Choice or Chapters or even Daraz.pk.

It is made of the rubber/silicon, these grips give support to hold a pencil.You need to put pencil and child’s index finger to the attached rings.It gives support to hold it firm and ease of writing or drawing.
