Develop Fine Motor Skills with Noggins + A Giveaway!



You’ve arrived in Nogginsland!

Well – not really – but we loved the tagline so much we had to use it to introduce you to Nogginsland, a place where children’s imagination can run wild and be free. Doesn’t that sound like a wonderful place to visit? Noggins, who come from Nogginsland, are fun, playful, and have a habit of helping their little friends pick things up, hold things the right way, or use things, like scissors, the right way. We have been introduced to Nogginsland and their sweet little Noggins, and we think their ability to inspire kids to play, learn, and grow is an idea worth sharing!


When you have a preschooler who is learning to write their name and their letters, use a pair of scissors, or other things of that nature,  sometimes they get discouraged by their less-than-perfect motor skills. They know it doesn’t match what they are seeing and sometimes they can get frustrated. That frustration along with the observation that many children were positioning, grasping, and ultimately using scissors incorrectly, is what led to the development of Noggins! 


Nogginsland products are dedicated to the development of fine motor and visual motor skills through play. The Noggins are small, repositionable foam stickers that can be used on pencils, markers, scissors and even fingers! They have various adorable character faces that kids will love. They are play-centered and are used as an educational tool in the development of fine and visual motor skills. They add some fun to play and practice time – and help your kids develop those skills without even realizing it. 



Here are some other tips, where you can add in your Noggins, for making practice time a positive and fun experience!

Use a Baking Sheet for Textured Play

Use a variety of materials contained in a baking sheet. Put a Noggin on a paintbrush, and make letters, shapes, and artwork, then simply smooth out it again and start fresh! Use cornmeal, play sand, or shaving cream, and when you put it in a cake pan, it contains the mess. The more extensive “slate” means they can make their letters big, so they are learning the shapes and the how-to-write without worrying about lines on a paper. One skill at a time makes it more achievable for them.


Cutting and Pasting is Excellent Fine Motor Skill Development

Learning to use a pair of safety scissors to cut out shapes, is a great way to teach fine motor skills and muscle development in their hands and fingers. These skills enable more difficult skills down the road. Make scissor time more fun with one of the Nogginsland reusable stickers that kids adore using!


Coloring Pages and Mazes

My kids loved coloring pages and they would be even more fun dressed up with a Nogginsland Noggins character. You can take coloring to the next level with simple maze puzzles as well. Mazes require not only fine motor and pre-writing skills keeping the coloring line inside the line of the maze, but also takes some strategic thought as well because the students have to think through their options to find the correct solution. It’s a win/win for preschoolers to practice maze and coloring pages.

Hello. Even though I am not a mom to human children, I know from friends with kids how important those early motor skills are. I love that you not only told us the benefits, but showed the kids in action. That briefcase for the Noggins sticker set will come in handy!

These are so cute and innovate too! I’m sure a lot of parents with young children would enjoy getting these for their children, and the kids will enjoy using the Noggins. 🙂

The Noggins sets look like they would be really useful for children, especially those who struggle with their fine motor skills. I like the cute designs they will really appeal to the kids too.


The noggins can really help my second daughter Shane. She is still practicing how to write properly at 4 years old.

Those are very cute. My son had OT for his fine motor skills from age 2-12. Never heard of these- wish I had. They would have been very useful.

This is so important. It’s so essential to help your little ones. If my son was a toddler, I would so look into this. These actually look like fun learning activities.


I like the sound and look of these foam stickers. I think my kids would find them very useful. They are pre schoolers.


This is great! Seems like a really great way to help kids develop their motor skills. It’s very important for kids to start learning and I think this is a great and fun way to do it!

It is really important to develop the motor skills early. I did that to my niece at an early age.


Love this idea to help children not only learn motor skills but have fun while doing it – and I love the word, “Noggins” as the product name (very catchy). Kids would get a real kick out of using Noggins and Parents will love that their kids are learning. Great post!


Thank you all for the wonderful comments and feedback! Best of luck!
