The sound and feel of ripping paper is satisfying , it's great fine motor skill practice for little ones, and it's fun! 1. Gather your materials. You will need some glue, scrap paper in blue and green, a paper plate - or cut a circle out of some cardboard from your recycle bin. 2. Start by ripping the paper into pieces. 3. Add glue to the plate. 4. Start adding the green paper. 5. Finish it off with the blue. Don't worry if your little one doesn't cover the whole thing,just encourage them to add more pieces to the puzzle !
