Building Hand Strength

Hand strength is necessary for controlling writing utensils later on. We provide lots and lots of activities for children to pick things up with their little hands. Other things that make strong hands are squeezing things like play dough and pinching things like clothes pins and other small items that fit together. Making small balls of tissue paper and placing items carefully all help make strong hands ready to write their names in the future!
