To help your child with writing, start by boosting their fine motor skillsWhat are fine motor skills?

 

Fine motor skills involve the use of small muscles in our hands, wrists, fingers, feet and toes; and require your child's brain to coordinate between the action and what they are seeing. Fine motor skills can impact things like holding a fork to eat or using a pencil to write.

 

Build up finger muscles with this rubber band game (I used dry pasta twists - we don't have any golf tees at home!)
