The early years of life are the most important for children. That's when the child's brain develops and learns to make connections. These years determine how your child will grow and develop.
One very important aspect of the child's development is her motor skills. How she develops her motor skills will affect how she performs in other physical and intellectual activities later on.
There are two types of motor skills: fine motor skills and gross motor skills.
Fine motor skills are skills such as the ability to manipulate small objects and write. Specific activities for toddlers that can enhance fine motor skills include playing with puzzles, painting, cutting, threading, playing with blocks, cooking (playdough).
Gross motor skills are bigger motor skills like jumping, running, hopping. These skills require that the toddler works on his balance and coordination.
In our motor skills activities section, we provide fun activities for toddlers that help develop both fine and gross motor skills.
Expert studies have shown that reading to your toddler helps stimulate her brain. As a result, reading also makes your toddler more intelligent!
