How to boost your child’s fine motor skills this Easter

Did you know that extra-curricular activities can help your child with their schoolwork?

Crafting offers little ones a creative way to learn through play and is brilliant for developing fine motor skills — essential for everyday tasks, from fastening buttons to tying shoelaces and even holding a pencil. Experts agree that these skills are honed through the precise movement of fingers, which are necessary for grasping and holding a range of materials and equipment. Crafting strengthens these hand muscles and boosts hand-eye coordination in a way that youngsters love.

Put simply, nurturing fine motor skills helps to give children the best possible start — both academically and beyond.
