These fine motor crafts all use paper punches to create different artwork and activities.
Circle punches are such a great tool for working on fine motor skills. Firstly, children work on their hand-eye coordination by positioning the paper inside the punch. Then they work on hand strength by pushing down to punch the paper. And finally they then get to work with a teeny tiny bit of paper – and the best way to pick it up is with a pincer grasp. There are so many types of artwork or fun activities that can be created with paper punches!
