15 Fine Motor Activities to Improve Pincer Grasp

If you are here to score some sweet pincer grasp activities then I'm guessing you love fine motor skills activities as much we do.

We love them so much, in fact, that we wrote a book about them. Wait- scratch that- we wrote TWO books about them!

They each include all sorts of busy bags, life skills, crafts, seasonal activities and more to get your little one's hands working.

Okay now let's get to those awesome pincer grasp ideas!

A child's grasp develops over time, passing through several stages. Pincer grasp usually starts around the toddler age and is a key fine motor skill that parents and educators love to work on. When you make it fun, kids will love it too! Check out Sugar Aunt's description of the different pinch grasps we use in life.
