What are visual motor activities?

Visual-motor activities help children to practice coordinating the hands, arms, legs, and body with the eyes.  Visual-motor skills help us to complete activities of daily living such as buttoning a shirt, fine motor skills such as handwriting, gross motor skills such as catching and throwing, and many other visual perceptual skills such as copying from the board.  There are many other ways to practice these skills.

Types of visual motor activities

There are many different types of fun activities you can do with your students to work on their visual motor skills.  Here are some great easy types of visual motor activities.  Try some of the printables below.


Your students can work on pencil control by drawing simple drawings or simple pictures. Even scribbling or drawing diagonal lines, horizontal lines, and vertical lines can be beneficial to enhancing visual motor skills.


Working on writing letters of the alphabet is one way to work on visual motor skills. Mix it up by using uppercase letters and lowercase letters.
