The Importance of Motor Skill Development in Children Age 3 – 5
Developmental Milestones and Exercises to Improve Motor Skills
By age 5 your child should be able to complete the following: balancing on one foot for 5+ seconds, do a somersault, use utensils, dress themselves, brush their teeth and take care of other personal needs unassisted. All of these activities stem from fundamental motor skills. Exercises to improve these skills can be found below, as well as on our Motor Skill Development Program page.
