Fine Motor Skills

When kids finally learn to write at age five or six, they need to have strong hand muscles and fine motor skills.  Most kids gather these skills by doing every day tasks, such as using forks, brushing their teeth, and playing with toys.  However, you can help them develop these skills too with these fun activities that will also keep them busy!

    If you like these ideas, you will love my book!  It was released in July, 2012 and was co-written by me and Susan Case.  In this unique book, which was written by both a Mom and a former Kindergarten Teacher, you will find ways to keep your little kids busy, out of trouble, and motivated to learn.  If you have ever tried to cook dinner while your kid clings to your leg and cries, this is the book for you!  Kids behave better when they are given challenging projects to work on, which will in turn give you more free time to do the things you really need to do, like washing dishes, paying bills, and relaxing so that you can be a better Mom!
