What are my gross motor skills?

Gross motor skills are the development of the larger muscle groups such as a child's arms or their legs

How will they develop?

They will develop by completing activites such as walking, running and climbing. These will then develop further as they get older and they will become more complicated for the child to do as they get older. This is so that the child develops more as they grow older and can then focus on other areas of their development.

Fine motor skills will develop through activities like threading beads and painting. Just like gross motor skills the activities that they do will get more complicated over time so that they can develop more and then focus on other areas of their development that are maybe not as strong.
