Children who are encouraged to write with a variety of utensils at an early age will later learn to execute their fine motor skills more easily, more effectively, and with greater confidence than children who do not have this encouragement.

Though the mastery of one’s fine motor skills take time, they can be practiced and developed throughout the course of one’s preschool experience.

A lot of our projects involved writing with q-tips. They are great because they not only require the pincer grasp, but strengthen your little one’s ability to focus on they make marks onto a piece of paper.
