WHAT IS FINE MOTOR DEVELOPMENT?

Fine motor skills involve the coordination of small muscles in the hands and fingers. 
At birth, children use their hands to explore themselves and the world around them.
Fine motor skills develop as their whole body starts to move and become more stable.
Furthermore, they also learn to do more things with their hands as their cognitive and
social/emotional skills improve.  Efficient fine motor skills require several independent
skills to work together to perform a certain task.
