Battleship to work on fine motor skills

Print Friendly

The mini travel games really challenge fine motor skills because the pieces are much smaller than the full size games. I love the connect 4 to go game, so I had to try out the tiny Battleship Travel Game as well.

The little pegs are very, very tiny, so they can be great for someone who needs that extra challenge, but could be frustrating for someone who has poor fine motor abilities. If the child doesn’t need an extra challenge, then I would recommend just using the regular sized battleship.

When playing battleship, you have to fit the multiple pegs of the ships into the holes, and then place individual pegs into the holes during play. The game also incorporates visual scanning and working with a math grid to call out the grid positions, such a D-4.
