Motor skills are skills that enable the movements and tasks we do on a daily basis. During the first year of life babies develop a lof of fine and gross motor skills.

Below is an infographic of what typical fine and motor skills get developed by age.

Typically, children develop certain motor skills at specific ages, though not every child will reach these milestones at precisely the same time. 

Don’t get worry if your child is ahead or behind, but if your motherly gut instinct tells you otherwise, ask a doctor.

Fine motor skills are those that require a high degree of control and precision in the small muscles of the hand (such as using a fork).

Gross motor skills use the large muscles in the body and include broader movements such as walking and jumping.
