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. 🙂
