Name: Learning Fine and Gross Motor Through Play Module II​​ 

SKU:​​ BLTPDFGMCOTSTPT

Solution Plan:​​ 

Fine motor skills​​ involve the use of the small muscles that control the hand, fingers, and thumb. They help​​ children​​ perform​​ important​​ tasks like feeding themselves, grasping toys, buttoning and zipping clothes, writing, drawing,​​ Fine motor skills​​ will​​ develop​​ and improve as they move through childhood.

Play Doh and Putty

Playdough and putty are often used as part of heavy work. It also helps improve a child’s fine motor skills. Encourage the child to squeeze, stretch, pinch​​ and roll “snakes” or “worms” with the play clay. You can even have the child try to cut the play dough with scissors.​​ 

Painting

Different types of painting can help strengthen the child’s hand-eye coordination and manual dexterity. Finger painting​​ gives kids an opportunity to use the hand and to get messy. Painting with a brush helps to learn to hold a brush and gain greater control using it as a tool. (Paint-by-number kits are great for brush painting.)

Playing with Sponges

A new, clean sponge, some water and two bowls are all you need for another activity to build fine motor skills. Fill a bowl with water and leave the other empty. The child can soak the sponge in the water and then squeeze out the sponge into the other bowl. It’s a simple game that can strengthen hands and forearms

Rice Races

Divide a handful of uncooked rice cereal or beads into two plastic bowls and have an empty bowl too. Give the child small plastic tweezers/tongs. Then, have the child to transfer their rice into the empty bowl​​ using the tweezers.​​ 

​​ Water Play

Fill a cup about a quarter full of water. Give the child an empty cup and an eyedropper/pipette. Have the child try to transfer the water from one cup to the other by drawing the water into the dropper and then​​ dropping or squirting it into the empty cup. You could also add food coloring to the water and make this a color-mixing experiment.
