Fine Motor Finger Gym!

Lets get those finger muscles pumping! In this after school adventure we will focus all things fine motor. Why is fine motor skill development important? Little hands need to develop dexterity and strength. Fine motor skills let kids perform crucial tasks like reaching and grasping, moving objects and using tools like crayons, pencils and scissors. As kids get better at using their hands, their hand-eye coordination improves. They also learn skills they need to succeed in school, such as drawing and writing.

This is a 6 session adventure, sign up for one or sign up for all! Each session will hold different activities. Limited spots available.
