Fine motor skills start developing in infancy, and keep improving as kids get older. Kids don’t all develop at the same pace. But there are milestones they usually reach at different ages.
For instance, at age 5 or 6, kids can typically copy shapes and letters, and use a spoon or fork with ease. By 7 or 8, they can usually tie shoes and button and zip on their own.
