Everything from buttoning a shirt to tying shoes requires fine motor skills. I hardly remember my parents buying toys for us those days. Very few toys were bought and in fact there was no such categorised toys to help us learn motor skills and all. So, here are few tips that how can you help your child develop motor skills without buying expensive toys. You can use this to reduce screen time too.

○Let your little one finger feed as much as possible. Picking up food with her fingers will help her develop a pincer grasp ,using thumb and first finger.

○ If you have beads of ur normal chain and thread give the baby a thread to put beads one by one on to the thread. This needs supervision and it's not expensive too. Straws can be used as beads, to thread onto something.

○Opening a zipper bag and closing it is a motor skill developing activity.

○Around 2 years , provide small crayons that fit into your little ones hands and let them scribble on a piece of paper.

○Help your baby open and close the latches of the doors or their own sippers. Scribbling with a pencil or help with a chalk n a slate board.

○Buy a therma coal board help ur kid punch a hole with pencil ,its another motor skill activity.

○Use a regular piggy banks or a recycled container and encourage your child to hold 2 or 3 coins in the hand and push them through the hole in the box one at a time without dropping the others.

○Use the clothes pins to pick up and transfer items from one container to another.

○Get your child to squash, squeeze, roll and pound with the play dough or atta.

அருமையான பதிவு

Many of tips m following n my son is enjoying while doing them.Thanks for sharing.Yesterday,i washed three pair of shoes of my Husband.When they were dry ,i put them near the table without arranging them.I was busy in kitchen,when i came back i saw that Vyaan arranged the three pairs perfectly like he places two similar shoes,then another two n thirdly another two.I feel so happy

Very useful for the kids. These are household items.

Sania Bhushan Vyaan is such a sweet boy. All credits to you.

Thank u so much Rebecca Prakash n Vyaan is always in attempt to explore the things n makes his surroundings messy.I never interrupt him in doing so Now days he tries to explain me that what other says to him n what he wants like water or some eatable in his language ''chizzi""😋😋

Revauthi rajamani ... I've seen Aarav do all this and still does.. he helps me through a lot of my chores too...he is enjoys everything else except his toys .... Toys is like for once a while... He started holding on to a sipper mug n spoon etc much early and his paed was also very surprised and happy..
Now he even understands left right and wearing his shoes right ...it's a really good share....thank you...

That's really nice.

Wonderful post indeed. I m going to try some as haven't tried yet.
