Activities for Strengthening Your Child's Motor Skills

A central part of early childhood education is fine and gross motor skill development. At your child’s early learning center in Pembroke Pines, practice with motor skills is likely to be incorporated into the lessons each day. You can further support these activities by working on motor skill development at home.

Watch this video for some advice for improving your child’s motor skills. You don’t need to invest in a special equipment to practice motor skills. Help your child practice balance by using a 2x4 as a balance beam and work on finger and hand skills with Play-Doh that you either buy or make together. Continue making the challenges harder as your child masters different tasks, so that his or her skills continue to develop.
