If you've got a tot who's not thrilled about getting crafty, here is an activity that will have his fingers excited about creating. Along with boosting fine motor skills, this torn paper collage craft appeals to kids who like order and defined directions. This project is seriously easy, making it stress-free for everyone while introducing shapes and design to your tot. And it is a great way to use scraps of construction paper or old newspapers and magazines you have around the house — just make sure the papers contrast enough so your lil one has a cool-looking finished collage.
The next time you get a Bubble-Wrapped item in the mail, don't toss that wrapper. Along with being a fun way to encourage fine motor skills by popping those itty-bitty plastic bubbles, your little one can use it for creating a really cool painting.
You'll never look at Bubble Wrap the same way after this fun activity! And your lil one will love getting messy with a bit of paint. Feeling adventurous? Instead of offering your tot a paintbrush, see what happens when your lil one only uses his fingers for this craft!
