This is a simple project perfect for toddlers and preschoolers. Miss A (3yrs) & Miss D (almost 2yrs) enjoyed doing this activity. Miss A used her safety scissors and cut out the construction papers into small pieces. Shes been using her safety scissors for a while now. She does a good job cutting randomly. We are still working on the scissor skills. If your LO is not ready for scissors yet, let them tear the paper into small pieces and then glue it. Tearing is also great for developing fine motor skills.👍 Miss D has not used scissors yet so i let her tear a few pieces of paper to make stem and leaf.This activity also develops their social skills as they were helping out each other during the activity. They took turns on who would apply the glue (although we had two glue sticks😋) and who would stick the cut papers. They wanted to do more and hence we ended up making red & green apple. I did ask them to cover up all the white area but they were happy the way it looked and i think it turned out great😀
🍁 Happy Autumn! Cheers! 🍁
