This month, we’ve compiled a list of ideas for working on finger movements and pointing motions with your child.

  • Have your child try to pop bubbles using only one hand. To make the task easier, your child can “catch” the bubbles on a wand first so the activity doesn’t require so much coordination.
  • Ask your child to push buttons on toys or play tablet games that require pointing or dragging with the index finger.
  • Read illustrated books with your child and ask them to point to pictures.
  • During board games, your child canwork on finger isolation by spinning a spinner.
  • Play “Simon Says,” pointing to various body parts and challenging your child to do the same.
