This is a great craft for kids that are just learning to use scissors. Cut long black strips of paper and allow your child to snip the strips into blocks for the windows. If your little one has trouble opening and closing the scissors, start with self-opening scissors. Here are a couple of versions you might like.
- Cut star like shapes from the paper plates for comic strip type quotes
- Write on words such as “Wham”, “Pow!”, “Whoosh!” and then decorate
- Glue the comic book style quotes onto the buildings to form an entire comic book style cityscape
Legos are a great tool for working on fine motor coordination, as well as motor planning when you follow the step by step instructions to put together a project. This craft pairs perfectly with small lego super hero kits. The one pictured here was purchased at the local Dollar store for just $10. Here are a couple of kits that you might enjoy!
