What is Scrimbling?

Everyday we encourage our children to strengthen their fine motor skills through fun and engaging 'Scrimbling' activities such as hammer boards, using tweezers or pegs. Nursery is a crucial age to develop these fine motor muscles to prepare them for tasks such as writing and zipping up coats or buttons. This can be done through writing and cutting but many children do not choose to access these areas, often resulting in variation in fine motor development among this age group. Fine motor skills require patience, which is in shorter supply, so Scrimbling is set up to be exciting and engaging to all children! Why not try additional fine motor skills at home too!
