Tear-rifying Jackolanterns

Here is a fun Halloween craft we did to practice tearing.

Tearing paper is a great way to strengthen bilateral coordination, cognitive skills, fine motor skills, strength, visual motor integration, and visual perceptual skills!  

I printed off pumpkin pictures from the computer.    The girls then covered the pumpkin with glue, and torn pieces of paper.   We used colored streamers  – orange for the pumpkin,  and black for the eyes and mouth.  Different types of paper will change the difficulty when you do tearing crafts.

We made several pumpkins — and hung them in our hallway.   Our own little pumpkin patch. 🙂
