Your child can help you decorate for the season with this fun craft. It’s a great way for them to get creative while strengthening their fine motor and pre-writing skills.*
- Construction paper in fall colors
- A paper plate
- A glue stick
- String or yarn to hang the wreath
Step 1: Cut out the inside of the paper plate so that the outer ring is left.
Step 2: Have your child tear up pieces of construction paper.
Step 3: Help your child glue the pieces of construction paper around the paper plate, and talk about the difference between a mosaic, where the pieces of paper don’t touch one another, and a collage, where they can overlap.
Step 4: Once the glue is dry, tie yarn or string around the top of the plate to hang it up.
