Today’s children seem to be spending more and more time on screens and less time on playing with real toys. This can result in weaker muscles in the hand and fingers.

Developing hand strength in children is super important for everyday functional skills.  Kids need to have the adequate muscle strength to use the monkey bars, hold a writing utensil, use school supplies and get dressed.  Children can work on improving grip strength through play and everyday activities. You can also add this fun FREE printable hand strengthening exercise game to work on building up those muscles.

How to Play the Hand Strengthening Exercise Game

Download the game below and print it on white or colored paper. Each player will need a hole punch. Cut out the two rectangles on the game page. Give one rectangle and a hole punch to each player.

On GO, use a hole punch to create holes in each of the tires. The first player to get the finish line with all the tires punched out is the winner!

If you only have one player or one hole punch, record your time to see how fast you can finish. The player with the shorted time is the winner. For solo play, complete the race a few times to see how fast you can finish the race.
