It is a good activity that helps with the fine motor skills which involve the use of the small muscles that control the hand, fingers and thumb. Fine motor skills are crucial because the ability to use the smaller muscles in the hands allows children to perform self-care tasks without assistance, such as buttoning, zipping and writing.
