Health Tip: Help Toddlers Develop Stronger Hands
Here's what parents can do

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- Between the ages of 1 and 2, toddlers begin strengthening the muscles in their hands and using the hands in new ways.

To help the process, the American Academy of Pediatrics suggests:

  • Show your child how to fold paper.
  • Let your child play with toys that involve putting square pegs into square holes.
  • Help your child stack a tower of five-to-six blocks.
  • Help the child disassemble toys, then put them back together.
  • Let your child use clay to create different shapes.
