Fine motor skills
Require movement of small muscles, usually in coordination with the eyes, but also include movements of the tongue and lips, wriggling of the toes and foot-eye coordination.
They are often for communication purposes, both functional and expressive, e.g. writing, manipulating tools or creating works of art.
Between the ages of 3 and 5 children usually make rapid progress in developing fine motor skills and manual dexterity.
