Did you know crinkling small pieces of tissue paper is an excellent finger exercise to build fine motor skills in children?

Crinkling small pieces of paper uses the same three fingers necessary for gripping a pencil: the thumb, pointer, and middle fingers. Children typically develop the strength and dexterity to grip a pencil around age four. Crinkling tissue paper is just one craft idea for kids to help develop the ability to grip and complete other fine motor tasks.

Here is a fun and easy Valentine’s Day craft idea that incorporates crinkling tissue paper! It’s appropriate for children age 5-6.
