Fine motor skills

Difficulties with handwriting or drawing can be attributed to poor fine motor skills. In combination with various handwriting and accuracy techniques, sessions to improve fine motor skills can improve many aspects of a child’s life, from tying their shoe laces to eating their dinner.

Some children find simple tasks such as holding a pencil or cutting paper extremely difficult and can become frustrated when they are unable to complete tasks effectively. Our fine motor skill programmes are designed to be fun and functional: Simple resources and games played on a regular basis to ensure measurable improvement.



Custom-made to include any subject matter, this simple but often over-looked activity is brilliant for improving fine motor skills. Each picture can be completed with or without a ruler, dependant on your individual needs.

Price on request.

Speed Colouring

This group game will encourage motivation in those who do not show any interest in hand-writing and other fine motor related sessions. Each child is provided with identical patterns and it is a race to complete the activity as specified (made progressively more difficult). Simple, yet effective, children will definitely enjoy taking part.

Tricky Tweezers
