Developing your child’s eye-hand coordination
Eye-hand coordination is the ability of the vision system to coordinate the information received through the eyes to control and direct hands to perform specific tasks such as for instance catching a ball, drawing a picture, learning to write, tying shoes and building with blocks.
Very often children with poor eye-hand coordination have no problems either with vision or motor control. It’s about the mechanism that makes those two cooperate.
Have fun together while working on your child’s eye-hand coordination!
It’s up to the strength of their eye-hand coordination how well your children will do in art, music, sports and driving a car later in life. Fortunately you can have impact on these skills through numerous fun activities.
This games help your children to play with blocks. Catching, throwing, targeting various containers all greatly improve eye-hand coordination.
There are also many craft activities that especially help in strengthening eye-hand coordination such as: stringing beads, making macaroni or cut straw necklace, lacing cards around the edges.
