What is motor skills?

Motor skills are motions carried out when the brain, nervous system, and muscles work together.

Fine motor skills are small movements that use fingers, wrist, lips and tongue. For example picking up tiny object with fingers and writting.

Gross motor skilks are the bigger movements that use the large muscles in the legs, arms, torso and feet. For example: running, jumping and dancing.


Gross motor development is important part of your child's development. You can help your child develop these skills by providing activities that encourage fine or gross motor movement.
