- This study aims to: (1) determine the effectiveness of knowledge-based water play activities models in fine motor training for children aged 3-4 years based on indicators of children's fine motor skills and (2) to measure the feasibility of knowledge-based water play activities models in training fine motor skills children aged 3-4 years are measured based on children's play activities and the child's response to water play activities. This research method is the research and development (research and development) Borg and Gall (1987) which has the aim to develop and validate the product. Through research and development, a product of a proper and effective water play activity model was used to train fine motoric children aged 3-4 years.The results showed that children who were categorized as having fine motor skills were 21 people (84%) while those who did not have fine motor skills were 4 people (16%). Based on the results of this acquisition, the group (classical) can be said that the child has fine motor skills. The results of research on children's activities obtained an average percentage of children's activity at the interval of effectiveness limitation criteria, thus it can be concluded that water-based activities based on proper knowledge are used to train fine motoric children in terms of children's activities in play. The results of the research on children's responses to play activities showed that all indicators of children's response effectiveness were above 80% and thus it could be said that all aspects received positive responses from children. This means, if viewed from the child's response, the implementation of water play activities is said to be feasible to train the fine motor skills of children aged 3-4 years.
