The purpose : to see whether there was a relationship between physical exercise and fine motor skills in PAUD children.

Method : used is quantitative with a correlational approach. The population in this study was PAUD Islam Makarima children aged 3-4 years. The instruments used are physical activity questionnaires and DDST. The data analyzed using the Kendall test.
