Today, many parents know the importance of developing children's fine motor skills.
Today, many parents know the importance of developing children's fine motor skills. From the first few months of life, they put babies' small objects in their pens and choose special educational toys for them. And it is right! On our site you will also find many useful recommendations on this topic and a wide range of toys for fine motor skills
But when parents pay so much attention to fine motor skills, parents forget about gross motor skills! Great motor skills, that is, the movement of large body muscles, develop much earlier than small ones. On this basis, more complex fine motor movements are then superimposed. It is difficult to learn how to hold a spoon properly when the arm muscles are weak. We use these skills every day.
What should be done to develop a child's gross motor skills? The first and easiest thing is morning exercise. Exercise helps a child control their body. Use the ball: you can roll, throw and catch it. Dancing, cycling, swimming - all of this helps to strengthen the muscles. Household chores will be useful: remove toys, water flowers.
For the development of a child's gross motor skills, exercises mimicking the movements of an adult are well suited. In this way you can playfully develop reactions and learn to feel your body. Organize an obstacle course. Arrange several objects so that the child has to walk around them, jump over them, crawl under them and climb over them. This way you can combine the use of different motor skills in one game.
The greatest effect will be when you do some physical exercise. Take your child out for walks in the fresh air more often.
