Birthday Gift Idea


Fine motor skills can be encouraged and developed through many easy made activities or routine activities around the home. For example pegs, cooking, etc.

But birthdays are a great time to invest in some toys and games that may also develop these skills.

One of my favourites is Kerplunk. It helps develop pincer strength and you can modify the game to use hand manipulation skills with the marbles. This is where children move items from their palm to pincer grasp.
