Finger Dexterity is a very important skill to build. Working in finger dexterity is important to build because it is the precursor to writing. As a parent or educator you want to find easy art projects that promote this. A nice one is paper weaving, it is good for 5-6 year old children. It will help build on their finger-dexterity skills. You want to utilize projects, puzzles, knitting/sewing, and games that involve finger dexterity for young children. Building on this skill is vital because it is a precursor to their writing skills. Looking for projects or activities that support dexterity in young learners is important for their development. It will enviably will improve their over-all writing skills later.
Here is the art project we did:
Weaving paper is a fun rainy-day craft that keeps little fingers busy. My son liked making his own paper-weaved rug. We are going to use this skill to build up to a paper-weaving project that we will turn into placemats and a potholder weaving project.
If you want to do this project all you need is construction paper or decorative scrapbooking paper along with tape or glue.
