Fine motor skills are finger and hand skills such as writing, cutting, opening lunch boxes, and tying shoe laces.
The development of these skills relies upon age appropriate development of physical skills (such as core trunk control and shoulder strength) providing the stable base from which the arm and hand can then move with control.
For this activity, we used Q-tips and paint to write on the moon!
To begin with, students dipped their Q-tips in white paint. They they added white dots onto the word MOON.
