Developing fine motor skills involves the practicing of reaching and grasping of different objects to develop coordinated movement of the shoulder, forearm, wrist, hands and fingers. Hand eye coordination and bilateral integration as well as sequencing are all developed while playing with our wooden threading boards. Younger children will practice lacing into any holes in any sequence but still practicing control and grip. The older child will learn to follow the correct threading sequence of under, over, under, over etc. Our boards are hand crafted from wood and come in a variety of animal shapes.
