Children love the holidays.
On days like these, they expect something special. Halloween is one of the brightest holidays kids will remember. In this article, we are not going to touch on the history and traditions of Halloween. We suggest preparing this day in an interesting and useful way. Let's tinker with our own hands!
Why is crafting itself a great idea for a child's development ?
Any manual work contributes to the development of sensorimotor skills in children. The development of the hand plays an important role in the formation of the brain and language. This means that for the child and brain to develop, it is necessary to exercise their hands. The development of fine motor skills in children is also important because the entire future life of a child requires the use of precise hand movements. All of this is also necessary to prepare the hand for writing and learning activities.
That is why we offer some craft ideas. You can invite a child to make themed baby toys with their own hands!
- The main Halloween craft is a scary pumpkin head. This is a really great game for kids up to 4 years old . Together with the parents, the child likes to cut out facial features, invents the shapes of the eyes and mouth. Or is it perhaps more interesting to use a felt pen to draw a face directly on the pumpkin?
- Many interesting things can be made out of paper. For example bats. For the wings, the leaves can be folded like an accordion or the wings can be cut out of thick paper. Roll up a paper tube. This will be the body. Cut and glue the ears and wings. Draws the eyes. Complete!
A themed paper garland will be a great home decoration!
- Make ghosts out of white napkins. Simply wrap your finger with a napkin, fix the shape. You can draw funny faces.
Another way to make cute ghosts is with a balloon and thin fabric!
● You can sculpt a variety of funny monsters out of plasticine. Let your child get creative - there are no rules. Eight eyes, three arms and an orange head! Here's a real workout for sensorimotor development !
Introduce yourself with your children. Create unique pieces.
We wish you a wonderful Halloween !
