HAND TO EYE COORDINATION - Teaches grasping and holding skills which leads to success in school and beyond. SPORTS - Hand eye co-ordination can help your child to catch a ball and hit a ball with a bat. HANDWRITING - Visual-motor integration, which is a vital skill for handwriting, grows out of a good hand-eye co-ordination base. The eyes need to guide the hand in forming the letters and making sure they stay within the lines. READING - Eye tracking skills, which are vital for reading, can be developed through games and activities used for hand eye coordination. PLAY AND LIFE SKILLS - Young children use this skill in learning to stack towers, build with bricks etc, and we even use hand eye coordination to tie shoelaces and frost cakes.EVEREARTH - THE STORYFor over 40 years, EverEarth has been a global leader in the design, supply and manufacture of inventive wooden toys and gifts.
