Halloween Themed Paper Chain Craft for Decoration and Fine Motor Skills.
Why are fine motor skills important?
Fine motor skills involve the use of the small muscles that control the hand, fingers, and thumb. They help children perform important tasks like feeding themselves, grasping toys, buttoning and zipping clothes, writing, drawing, and more.
Fine motor skills develop with time and they have many milestones. They also impact the speech development of your child and the overall motor development. The more you practice, the better the fine motor skills become and they can also make your child feel more confident since he/she is able to complete daily tasks by himself/herself!
Strong fine motor skills are crucial when it comes to writing as well. Developing these skills helps your child do more complex things in the future – from playing sports to doing chores.
Sit down with your child this Halloween and make some DIY paper chains – this pack offers blank stripes so you can draw or write whatever you want in your own paper chain!

P.S. PLEASE DO NOT PRINT THE FIRST PAGES OF THE WORKSHEETS.
THE FIRST PAGES ARE PURELY DECORATIVE AND THEY ARE NOT A PART OF THE WORKSHEET.
WE ALL LOVE COLORED WORKSHEETS BUT LET’S TRY NOT TO BE TOO WASTEFUL.
The paper decoration is also more eco-friendly than the plastic one. If you want to put it in compost, make sure to check out what kind of dye is your printer using, but most of all – try to make your play sessions as much waste-free as you can. If this pdf inspired you, just make your own paper chains, without printing and enjoy decorating!
