Gross motor skills and fine motor skills are both important aspects of a child’s development and involve different types of movements.
Gross motor skills involve the use of large muscle groups and the coordination of body movements eg walking, climing, throwing and catching a ball etc. Developing strong gross motor skills is essential for children to engage in physical activities, It also lays the foundation for the development of fine motor skills.
Fine motor skills involve the use of smaller muscle groups, particularly those in the hands and fingers, to perform precise movements. These skills are necessary for activities that require hand-eye coordination, dexterity, and control. Eg writing, buttoning and playing instruments etc. Fine motor skills also support cognitive development, as they allow children to explore and interact with their environment in more detailed and controlled ways.
