Why exercise fine motor skills?

Because it concerns acts related to the small fine muscles of the whole body and more particularly of the hand and fingers. It is also through these learnings that children prepare their writing skills.

It is important to encourage them in their development by offering them activities that encourage them to do things that require precision, calm and attention.
