Fine motor skills include small-scale and precise movements with well-measured use of muscles. The targeted control of fingers, toes and face becomes more important from toddler age, but begins as early as infancy.

Small movements for big success
With kindergarten age, the development of fine motor skills comes to the fore: Dressing yourself and fastening buttons, eating with cutlery and painting are great successes for more independence. At the same time, thinking skills, creativity and concentration increase. This is the basis for learning to read and write and a good start to school.
Promotion with fun and games
You can promote your child's fine motor skills at an early age by supporting natural curiosity and the urge to explore. By the way, all the senses are used with exciting pegging games: What fits together and how? What colors are the parts? How do I describe what I'm doing right now?
