Motor skills concern the body and how it develops to respond to the environment throughout infancy and childhood. For example, at the age of 12 months most children have developed the motor skills to walk unaided by 18 months most will be able to use these walking skills to kick a ball and interact with other objects with their feet. (Of course, these vary from 1 to 2 months in the average number of children).
As in the preschool age is between 2-4 motor skills that relate to be able to paint and use crayons,other craft skills, the use of a knife and fork, and learning to write. The development of these skills relies on the support of preschool teachers, parents, and the interaction with other children doing the same activities.
