Building dexterity and strength in toddlers

Mastering how to use their hands is one of the most important things your baby or toddler will be learning in the next few years of their life. But while they are learning how to hold and manipulate objects other very important brain functions, like language, are also developing.

You can help your child build strength and dexterity in their hands by playing some fun and easy games with them and doing some simple exercises.


Teaching balance and coordination

A classic children’s game called hopscotch is a very good way to teach the toddler how to balance and co-ordinate.


Exploring writing

Allow older toddlers to begin exploring writing instruments (pens, markers and crayons).

Provide them with other toys and activities (e.g., pouring water) that develop the hand-eye coordination and fine motor skill necessary for writing.

Building heathy muscles

Toddlers, who have just learned to walk, need to build their muscles. Playing outdoors is a great way for your child to stay active and develop their large muscles.


Develop balance and strength

A great way to teach your toddler to walk is to tiptoe. Tiptoe teaches your toddler to actually use his/ her own body weight to develop strength and balance.

Before allowing the child to tiptoe, make sure you do it while the child is watching. Then have the child follow you as you tiptoe forward, backward, sideward and in circles.


Developing coordination

Within four to six months your baby begins to develop the coordination to move solid food from the front of the mouth to the back for swallowing.
