From birth to 6, children are in a continuous development process. During this process, they are being prepared to get the skills needed to interact with their environment. The more stimulation children receive, the greater the development of their skills and learning.
Boys and girls love to copy everything they see; this is how they learn skills to function on a day-to-day basis. However, children should not be pushed to make an exact copy of what they see since they will find the best way to do the tasks and develop their skills.
There are many activities children can do to develop fine motor skills. But these activities should be fun. Suppose children see these activities as a game. In that case, that will be much more engaging and eye-catching, and they will be happy to repeat the exercises until they master them.
The next kids motor skills activity is inspired by Montessori's learning method. Through it, children will play and, at the same time, will learn some movements they will need in their daily life. They will also get some mathematical skills.
