Ripping and Roaring
A great way to help your children build fine motor skills is to have them rip strips of paper. The dexterity needed to rip pieces of paper helps them gain fine motor control. You can use the strips to make art projects (we made flags and collages of tiny pieces). You can also have your child crumple up the pieces they've torn and shoot baskets with them, which is great for hand-eye coordination.
