Torn paper rain boot craft is great Spring toddler and preschooler activity. This simple craft is a great way to keep your little one busy indoors and strengthen their fine motor muscles!
Learning how to use scissors is a process for children and a great way to start the process is to teach them how to tear paper. Tearing paper is great activity to strengthen fine motor muscles necessary not only for using scissors but also for other important skills such as writing and doing up buttons.
Plus tearing paper is fun. Once my toddlers got the hang of it they will loved it!!
How to Create Torn Paper Rain Boot Craft
- Have your little one start tearing paper into small pieces. Show them how to do this if they have not done it before.
- While they are tearing you can draw the outline of a rain boot on the piece of white paper. I drew the outline of the boot using a pencil.
- Once your little one is done (remember toddlers won’t be able to tear all the paper necessary for this craft on their own. You will have to help them)
- Help your toddler glue the torn pieces down on the outline of the rain boot.
- Once they are done, you can either cut out the boot and then glue the boot on a separate piece of white or coloured paper.
- Tear some pieces of blue paper. This will become the rain. Glue the torn rain drops around the boot.
- Tear a large piece of brown paper and glue it underneath the boot. This will be muddy puddle your boot is splashing in!
