Motor Skills are important for a child's development, independence and growth.
Motor Skills are divided into two categories: Fine Motor Skills and Gross Motor Skills.
Fine motor skills include activities that involve small muscles like the fingers, hands, wrists and feet. Activities that require fine motor skills include picking up small objects with your fingers, writing with a pencil or using scissors.
Gross motor skills are activities that involve large muscle groups such as the arms, legs and torso. Activities that require gross motor skills include crawling, running or jumping.
