This activity helps to build hand strength which improves a child’s cutting and writing. It also ties in nicely with the story “The Red House with No Windows and No Doors and a Star Inside”.
You will need:
Red, yellow, or green construction paper
Brown pipe cleaner, cut in half
Hole punchers that preschoolers are able to use
Cut an apple shape out of red, yellow, or green construction paper. Using the hole punchers, allow child to punch as many holes as they would like.
Give child the brown pipe cleaner (worm) to place in and out of several holes.
