Is your baby is sitting and pulling your hair?then he/she is ready for the next developmental activity of strengthening their hand muscles. The most valued fine motor skills are finger movements as we use that small part for doing much work in our life like writing, typing, drawing, holding things, tie a knot, and whatnot. For every other movement, we need proper and strong finger muscles.
Along with grabbing objects, shaking a rattle, pulling is one of the great fine motor activity which the baby tend to develop on their own.Let’s look into some of the pulling activities for infants, which helps in the development of fine motor skills. Babies show the readiness of pulling on their own ( Check for pulling your hair, pulling any cloth, toy, etc.). We can set up a few activities to encourage interest.
Grabbing is taking out an object without any hindrance. But pulling is done with some obstacle. Babies need to give little force to get the work done.
