Ripping and tearing paper is a super-fun way for kiddos to strengthen those finger and hand muscles.
The packet includes a pattern for a mosaic snowman, as well as a whole, torn paper one.
My kiddos do one the first week of January, then the other at the end of the month.
Completed projects make an awesome bulletin board or hallway display, which we keep up through February.
Older students can attach a winter writing prompt to the bottom.
As a math extension, have kiddos count how many torn pieces they glued down, then write that number somewhere on their picture.
