Toddler Star Tear Art Craft

Toddler Star Tear Art Craft

Here’s one that tots love.

Materials needed: construction paper and a glue stick

It is up to you if you want to let your little one tear the paper for the pieces needed, or if you want to have them pre-torn and ready for use. Also, same goes for the use of the glue stick.

If your tot is really young, then you may want to do what I do. I rub glue all over the star first, and then have T apply the torn pieces. Using glue is a developmental thing that takes practice, so you should relent it to your tot eventually (easier for some of us than for others ^^”).

This one has a red, white, and blue theme for the 4th of July.

For those of you interested, here is a list of concepts this craft helps to teach:

  • Colors
  • Star shape
  • Fine-motor skills

Enjoy!
