Sandpaper and Yarn
Give your child a sheet of sandpaper and several colors and lengths of yarn. Your child can put the yarn on the sandpaper in designs and it will stick to the sandpaper.
Tissue Paper Stained Glass Window
This stained glass window craft is a really fun activity that is sure to keep your preschooler busy for at least one General Conference talk.
Start by cutting out a “window” out of construction paper. Put this “window” on top of some clear contact paper. Be sure to keep the sticky side of the contact paper up.
Have your child stick different colors and sizes of tissue paper to the sticky side of the contact paper. Your preschooler can cut the tissue paper or he can tear the tissue paper. Both provide a different type of fine motor practice so they are both great options!
When the contact paper is all filled up with colorful tissue paper, cover it with another piece of contact paper so that the sticky sides are facing each other. Hang up your stained glass window craft in a window to see the light shine through all of the pretty colors.
