At school we are completing ‘DEMS’ (Development of Early Motor Skills). This is a program which supports gross and fine motor development. This week we hope you will be able to have a go at some of the fine motor tasks, doing tasks like these help to strength your finger muscles and support your handwriting development.
This week we would like you to have a go at some of the tasks below. For each task we will add a video link to model each activity.
Making a monkey with zigzag arms and legs
Snipping a lions mane
A concertina snake
As an extension task you may like to think of other jungle animals that you could make and combine some of these techniques!
