I know for a long time that it is extremely necessary to develop fine motor skills. The child grows and develops, and this means that you need to go towards him, and to promote full and comprehensive development. Today I will share with you simple games for the development of fine motor skills.
Of course, absolutely every mommy knows that the baby should not be given small items. He can shove them in his mouth, nose, ears. But when the crumb grows up, he will know the world. And then it is simply extremely necessary for him to develop fine motor skills. Why? Because developing the fingers and pens of our baby, we activate important points that are associated with the cerebral cortex.
If you, like me, are fond of sewing, surely you should have a magic box. Often this is just a box with all the accessories of a seamstress. But I am absolutely not a professional, so my box is the simplest: threads, buttons, strings, ribbons.
I have such a disease, to collect all the things that many people without regret throw in the trash. I tear the buttons off my shirt before throwing it away. And I’m not in a hurry to throw it away, because with it you can think of a lot to do!
My children love to look at the contents of this box. By the way, I have a box where I store pictures and all sorts of little things for a children’s album. I have already given birth to my second child, but my own album for the crumbs is still not a shame and a shame.
Now I am collecting various material that may be useful to me in my work. Children have noticed this business, and like to play a box. That stickers are molded, then beads are played. But small items I give only under my watchful eye!
You know, kids love small things. My kids love to play with pebbles and buttons. And sort them out and sort them. So they develop fine motor skills. And you can also give tasks: expand the buttons in size, color, design, find a pair. Such exercises develop memory, thinking, logic.
In general, the child himself can find the smallest or most huge button. My daughter likes to lay out different figures: a heart (her favorite geometric figure), a little man, the sun, a butterfly, a mushroom. Therefore, I even decided to diversify our collection with new buttons of bright colors or original design in order to surprise and delight children. The daughter folded her attractive face out of the chopsticks for bills and sunflower seeds.
I read a long time ago that it is useful for a baby to pull something in their hands. And the more and more diverse the items, the better. What else can you use? Shoelace. Yes, it is the lacing that perfectly develop fine motor skills. And the sooner to do this with a child, the better, I think.
Recently, lacing games have gained immense popularity. They can be easily seen in online stores, in a huge variety they are on the market, in supermarkets and many children’s departments of stores.
The only trouble is that at first this game was not interesting for my children. Then she quickly became annoying. I decided not to force her to play, and rarely showed. Then she noticed that there is interest, we continued to play.
Of course, such lacing games can be done by yourself. It is enough to have a cardboard, a cord and figures, which, in fact, are strung on a cord. Cutting a typewriter or wood from cardboard is easy.
If you make these games yourself, there is a chance that they will not bother the kid. In general, we use wooden figures, smooth pebbles, and plastic bottle caps.
It is also suitable for developing fine motor skills. We play and semolina and pasta. And I also bought sunflower seeds for my daughter. We made a beautiful crafts Sunflower, and my son decided to play.
We also go over beans, lentils, peas. But my son is very fond of semolina, he loves to draw with it. And it is worth noting, he is doing quite well!
