Fine motor development what is meant here is the development of the muscles in your little one’s hands to perform several movements that require coordination. For example, such as holding certain objects, writing or holding their own spoon. Practicing the fine motor development of the baby is very important because this fine motoric movement will make it easier for him to do every activity in school. If he has not been able to develop his fine motor skills properly, then he will also have difficulty eating and wearing his own clothes.
One of the keys to developing your child’s fine motor skills is to train him to do something regularly and continuously since he was a child. You can train your child’s fine motor skills with drawing activities. Activities such as drawing, writing and coloring are great to give children as often as possible since they are in kindergarten or elementary school.
Good activities to train children’s fine motor skills are drawing and writing. If asked which activity was the most difficult, of course everyone would answer drawing. This is because when drawing, children must use their abilities which at least involve 4 types of strength, namely the ability of children to use their bodies to express their ideas or feelings (intelligent movement), thinking skills as outlined in pictures (smart pictures), knowledge of themselves and the ability to act on this knowledge (self-intelligence) and the ability to convey the meaning through images (intelligent language).
Drawing activities will provide space for children to express child intelligence and the creativity they have so that they can grow up to be smarter children than when we told them to learn to memorize and count. Drawing can make children remember things more because with this activity they are asked to draw something and tell what they have drawn, not just reading and memorizing what already exists over and over.
Drawing activities also require coordination between the eyes and hands. He will learn how to write simple lines which over time will inevitably develop into more complex and clearer lines. Apart from drawing, you can also train your child’s fine motor movements by inviting him to play composing blocks, folding and tearing paper, inserting objects into holes, coloring and drawing lines. In this way, you can train their fine motor movements as well as explore the creativity and functioning of your little one’s brain.
