Fine Motor Skills Toys

These 20 fine motor skills toys are great gifts for toddlers and preschoolers!

Whether you are looking for a great birthday present, Christmas present, or simply looking for a toy to help your child develop their fine motor skills these are for you!

Fine Motor Skills

Fine motor skills are the small movements that we use daily without even realizing it.

Everything from buttoning a shirt to tying shoes requires fine motor skills.

In school children are expected to complete tasks that require fine motor skills as well. Whether its holding a pencil, using scissors, or handling small items, fine motor skills are important!

So how to we develop fine motor skills in children?

There are lots of fun and educational activities that can help with this! One of my favorites is through the use of sensory bins! Most sensory bins contain small items that require concentration and fine motor skills. You can find some great sensory bin ideas in my posts 25 Easy Sensory Bin Ideas and 19 Summer Sensory Bins!

But if you are looking for something that requires zero assembly, or that can be great for traveling and in the car, then check out these 20 toys to strengthen fine motor skills!

Perler Biggie Beads

Perler Beads are so much fun!

They are actually great for kids of all ages, not just preschoolers.

These biggie beads however, are ideal for younger children because the beads are a little larger than regular perler beads, which makes it easier for little hands to pick up and handle.

A great toy and craft for strengthening fine motor skills!

For older kids be sure to check out these awesome Minecraft Perler Beads, Easter Perler Beads, and these super fun Perler Bead Magnets!

However, as with any small object, be sure that your toddler doesn’t put the perler beads in their mouth! They are small pieces that can very easily be swallowed. So be sure to keep an eye on them while making this fun craft.

This toy comes with tweezers that your toddler or preschooler can use to sort the butterflies, count the butterflies or even create patterns using the butterflies!
