As kids we struggled to hold a pencil or chalk with our fingers and write something perfectly. We all remember how our parents and teachers taught us to hold a pencil and write letters or numbers. At the time, it was a tough row to hoe, wasn’t it? But now, we know how to write, draw lines, sketch, and even use crayons! Yay, we made it.
Some of you may also recall teaching your little ones to hold some of their toys properly. Toddlers need to learn how to grasp things with their hands. Though it seems easy, these small tasks require your baby’s brain and muscles to coordinate.
We all need the movement of our body muscles to complete the smallest physical tasks. Our ability to make movements with the help of small muscles in our hands, fingers, and wrists is known as fine motor skills. Babies slowly develop this skill while growing up and understanding their bodies. These fine motor skills help us to complete easy tasks like holding an object, using the keyboard, sketching on paper, or using different tools.
