These Tissue Paper crafts were rather simple to make, although it took a while, because tiny fingers gets tired tearing and squishing!Great fine motor practise though!
We used a piece of contact paper for each heart. I stuck the 3.5 year old’s piece on the white board, to work in a vertical position, just for a change. She was tearing pieces, red, pink and purple.
The 1 year old’s piece were on the table, for easy reach. He had to squish the paper and stick it down. He did not like the texture of the tissue paper, but found the sticky surface interesting though! Mom helped him finish the heart.
The heart made with the torn tissue paper we stuck on the red cardboard for a card, adding a ‘I love you’ cut-out.
The heart made with the squishy paper were used to decorate a box(at first we were just going to use pink wrapping paper, but then decided painting it will be better). This box will be perfect to put all those V-day gifts in.
