Hand eye coordination activities help kids use their hands (and muscles) and eyes at the same time. When the two work together, young children begin to increase their ability to pick up, grasp, and manipulate objects.

Cognitive activities is educational play and is vital for your toddler's cognitive development – that is, your child's ability to think, understand, communicate, make memories, imagine and work out what might happen next.

Fine motor skills involve movement of the smaller muscle groups in your child's hands, fingers, and wrists.

Developing fine motor skills will help your child to write and prepares her for school. But it will also help your children with everyday tasks like eating, and dressing themselves.

Creative activities help children express themselves and create something from nothing, explore materials and activities and use their imagination.
