fine motor skills — a set of coordinated human actions aimed at performing accurate small movements with the hands and fingers and toes.
From an anatomical point of view, about a third of the entire area of the motor projection of the cerebral cortex is occupied by the projection of the hand, located very close to the speech zone. Therefore, the development of a child’s speech is inextricably linked with the development of fine motor skills.
Every minute in a person’s life, it is required to perform some kind of fine motor activity: fastening buttons, manipulating small objects, writing, drawing, etc., therefore, his quality of life directly depends on its development.
Toys for the development of a child’s motor skills are different: all kinds of sorters and pyramids, lacing and puzzles, bodyboards, businessdoms, etc. There are a lot of examples, but let’s look at some of them.
We will start with such an educational toy as puzzles.
In this developing puzzle, everything is thought out to the smallest detail:
there is a whole palette of colors and patterns that can attract and interest the child. Comparing the pieces of the puzzle together, the child will develop imagination and associative thinking (a concept that reflects the use of associations), he will learn to understand which object is comparable to one or another animal. The constant shifting of the liners, the interest to pull them out and put them in is an integral process in the development of motor skills in a child.
In the following description, we want to tell you about a simple but very entertaining toy like lacing.
At first glance, the toy is very simple and you should not even pay attention to it, BUT it is not. Lacing perfectly fulfills its main mission — it develops fine motor skills and logic. The main goal of the game is to lace the figure with a cord. There are no specific algorithms or rules for lacing, which means that this toy is a whole field for your baby’s fantasy and imagination.
