It is now Hanukkah and we have a fun activity to help you celebrate! What better way to celebrate a holiday than spending time with family and friends working on a craft together. Today we are going to work on a variety of fine motor skills by making a menorah out of a paper plate. Being able to cut and color on the lines are importnat life skills to have and always fun to practice.
Important things to remember:
- Assist your child in using a proper grasp for their age.
- Have your child use their helper hand when cutting and coloring.
- Make sure your child keeps their elbow close to their body when cutting.
- Use verbal and visual cues to keep your child cutting and coloring on the line.
