Peeling and Applying Stickers for Fine Motor Development in Children

Stickers & Decals for Fine Motor Development in Kids:

Kids love decals and stickers. There are many fun styles of decals and stickers for children, but you may be asking how does this help preschoolers to develop fine motor skills.

When using fun stickers and decals with children to build fine motor skills it’s simple a matter of letting them peel them off and apply them on to your designated areas or paper.

The pulling and peeling and then re-applying of them onto paper, worksheets, activity pages etc. makes use of the small, tiny muscles in their hands and fingers. It’s these small muscles of the hands and fingers that help to build the muscles increasing fine motor development skills.


Look for fun, colorful or educational style (numbers, letters etc.) stickers that kids will love peeling and using. This can help to make this an educational learning activity as well as one that develops the small muscles of their hands and fingers. Get creative and use your imagination when thinking of new activities for your preschool children.
