Fine motor movements include the coordinated movements of muscles in the hands and fingers. Activities that encourage gripping, pinching, and manipulating small objects develop these skills; these skills are important for writing, buttoning, zipping, tying, cutting, and using tools.

Through peg play children can learn colours and counting, improve fine motor skills, and enjoy experimental play. All you need for peg play is some plastic pegs, plus other ordinary household items. Peg play can include sorting by colours, playing with sound, and playing dress-ups with toys.
