Strong hands needed!

Little hands need to be strengthened to cope with the demands of school - writing, colouring, cutting and gluing.

How to strengthen those little hands?

  • tearing paper into strips

  • punching holes into paper

  • cutting paper, cereal boxes, junk mail, newspapers, toilet paper rolls

(remember to use rounded scissors from HIPPY Halton materials, demonstrate finger placement and supervise while cutting skills develop)

What to do with all those strips?

Make a collage - more practice for those little hands as they glue and place strips - and

new masterpieces to admire and talk about!
