It is always fun to sneak in some fine motor skills to any learning activity. We have a fun way to incorporate Valentine’s Day into a fun fine motor peg board activity. There are so many fine motor skills that can be learnt from working with peg boards.


This toddler activity incorporates eye-hand coordination, pincer grip for pre-writing exercise and some cutting.  So get some free occupational therapy and a few hugs!
