Abstract

The development of fine motor skills in early childhood, especially at the age of 5-6 years is important because it is a provision for early childhood at the next level of education. One of the fine motor development in early childhood is carried out through activities so that children can control the small muscles of the body including eye and hand coordination, one of which is coloring. The research method used is a descriptive qualitative method that explains the development of fine motor skills in early childhood through play activities. The data obtained was collected using interview data collection techniques, observation and documentation. Through coloring activities, the development of fine motor skills in early childhood in this study showed good development seen from the ability of children to use their fingers and provide color in a fairly consistent direction so as to minimize streaks outside the drawing lines and provide good results, so that children's fine motor skills at an early age experience well-developed to prepare for the next level.
