Finding ways to strengthen your preschooler’s small motor muscles is a vital part of their development. These fine motor skills will come in handy as they learn to get themselves dressed, tie their own shoes, and even as they learn to write.
Of course, finding ways to make that practice fun is just as important since, especially with little ones, they’ll learn so much more and will be so much more willing to work when their activities are fun and engaging.
With Halloween just around the corner, we’ve combined the two and have put together a list of 15 Halloween fine motor activities that are a little bit spooky and a whole lot of fun!
