Self-care skills

As children refine their motor skills, they are able to help themselves by
completing daily activities independently. For example children
between the ages of 2 and 3 are able to put on and take off simplistic
articles of clothing.[1] They are able to manipulate clothing with zippers,
use spoons, string together beads with large holes, and open doors with
doorknobs. When children are between the ages of 3 and 4, they are
able to manipulate clothing with larger buttons, use scissors to cut
paper, and are able to copy simple lined shapes using a pencil. At 4 to
5 years of age, children are able to dress and undress themselves
without assistance.[1] They are also able to manipulate a fork, and have
gained the dexterity to cut around shapes with a pair of scissors. And by
age 6, a child is able to cut softer foods with a knife, and is able to tie his
or her own shoes.
