Hand Eye Coordination Toys & Activities
Hand eye coordination toys and activities help children develop motor function, spatial awareness, and other necessary skills for everyday life. With our sensory toys and tactile games for kids, we at The Therapy Store aim to give every child the chance to improve their hand function and physical capabilities.
Developing hand eye coordination skills in children is incredibly important for personal development. This is because effective hand eye coordination influences the everyday functioning of the child. Visual motor integration is your child’s ability to use their vision to direct the movement’s of their hand, which is necessary for them to be able to print letters, colour between lines, feed themselves, do up buttons and manipulate objects. The development of these skills will allow them to later participate in sports such as tennis, netball, and hockey. Eye hand coordination activities allow children to properly practice and fine tune these skills in a fun and engaging way.
At The Therapy Store we stock an extensive range of hand and eye coordination toys to develop the hand function of children and adults across a variety of needs.
The Scrunch Digger is a handy little tool, perfect for the sandpit or beach. With a claw and scoop for raking and shovelling, the Scrunch Digger builds hand and arm strength while the children engage in creative construction.
Egg Maracas are fun and simple little toys that help children develop rhythm and hand function control. Bright and colourful, their small size and round shape means they fit perfectly into little hands.
Squeezable toys build hand strength, and you’ll find none cooler than the Surfing In The Tub monkey. As well as being a squirt toy, the monkey rides atop gentle bathtub waves on a foam surfboard.
Push Button Soccer is one of our best hand eye coordination activities. Players press buttons that correspond to field positions, to hit the ball into their opponent’s goal. This is fantastic for fine motor function, number recognition, coordination, and introducing the concepts of winning and losing.
