Visual motor skills involve the coordination of vision with body movements, particularly those involving the hands and fingers. Toys that require your child to use their eyes to guide their movements (such as stacking blocks or drawing) can significantly improve hand-eye coordination, an essential skill for activities like writing or catching a ball. While they are having fun, they are also developing the skills they need for school as well as many everyday activities.
