Development of the child's bones and muscles so that they are able to move about and manipulate their environment. There are two main types of motor skills: gross and fine. Gross motor development involves the large muscle groups, so that the child is able to sit, stand, walk and run. Fine motor development involves the small muscles, especially those in the hand, so the child is able to eat and draw.
