This clear, one-page handout is perfect to give to parents to help their child build fine motor ability.
In this handout, I list seven easy and fun activities parents can do with their child to improve hand-eye coordination and fine motor development. The activities suggested include: weaving, cooking, puzzles, crafts and more. Many parents want to help their child but just don't know what are some fun age-appropriate things to do. Specific product suggestions are given for different activities (ex: Crayola Model Magic).
At parent-teacher conferences I often have parents ask me how they can help their child. After repeating this type of information many times, I decided to make a handout that parents can refer to later. Hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills are very important for kids to develop. It's best to start young.. as soon as they can hold a crayon and not eat it, they will benefit from the practice.
This is good to pass out to all parents of pre-schoolers and kindergartners, as well as older elementary school kids who have trouble with skills such as cutting, gluing and holding a pencil.
