Early Childhood

Which apps and games can help with motor skill development?

Encouraging movement of any kind -- even silly, unstructured movement -- is a great way to help kids build motor skills. There are lots of movement games for preschoolers, which -- in addition to being lifesavers on rainy days -- are great for helping little kids develop both fine and gross motor skills.

Here are some to consider:

Dance games

These games break down large movements into small, manageable components that aid in spatial awareness, strength building, and rhythmic sense.


Handwriting and drawing

When kids practice writing, they build fine motor control at the same time they learn how writing communicates ideas.


Body awareness

Sensory integration and muscle memory come together when kids engage in mindful, full-body exercises.
