Improving hand/eye coodination
Toddlers love to sing and dance. Songs with hand motions are a great way for toddlers to learn fine motor skills. Children begin doing small hand motions at around 18 months old, but after about age 2 they are ready to do most of the hand motions to their favorite songs.
Some of their favorites: "Itsy-Bitsy Spider", "Patty Cake", "If You’re Happy and You Know it Clap Your Hands".
