, which require the use of many tiny muscles, gross motor skills involve the large, stabilizing muscles of the body. These are the skills that we associate with activities that engage the whole body, such as walking, crawling, running, playing on the playground and playing sports. Simply put, gross motor skills are needed to help individuals move independently from one place to another, so they are a major part of childhood development.
