Hand exercises to relieve aching fingers
What worksheets are here?
On this page you will find multiple hand exercise worksheets. Hand exercises help relieve muscle tension when writing. They are essential to learn if your child grips too tightly when holding a pen or pencil. They can be very helpful for children who have hypermobile fingers in their joints. Some people refer to hypermobile fingers as ‘bendy fingers’.
If your child comes home from school or after they have done their homework and said their hand is hurting then you need these exercise sheets. This is sometimes called ‘writers ache’.
To help you find the best resources for your child I have grouped handwriting skills into 4 easy to understand levels. Here you will find a combination of ALL levels of handwriting.
* Please use the age ranges as suggestions. We are all different. Handwriting is about capturing a child’s imagination and interest.
