Many children struggle with completing buttons, zippers, buckles and hooks on their clothing. It can be frustrating and even embarrassing for them as they try to manage their clothing in the bathroom or when they’re getting dressed or undressed for the day.
They need to demonstrate dexterity and visual motor integration to coordinate the movements with their hands. And they need to have adequate bilateral coordination skills to be able to use both hands together to bring the two parts of the fasteners together efficiently.
Help your little one work up to completing clothing fasteners more independently with this free printable 10-day workout. Each day, your child can complete the fun and simple activities or exercises, getting him closer and closer to her goal!
Simply print off the workout and get started! You can use the first printable sheet as your guide, or cut out the larger circles on pages 2 and 3, punch a hole in the top of each, and put them on a ring to bring with you on the go!
