easy torn paper ghost craftThis torn paper ghost craft is perfect for Halloween and is even easier to make using our free ghost template. Because you’ll be spreading the glue before you stick down your paper you can make sure that you have a ghost shape at the end but even if your glue and paper end up all over the page it really doesn’t matter, after all ghosts aren’t normally perfectly fully formed!

Why use torn paper?

Well firstly it’s a good way of using up old scrap paper, of which we always seem to have tons.

Secondly though, apart from making a nice change from just grabbing the paints, it’s actually a really good activity for fine motor skills.

Tearing paper helps increase the strength in your child’s hands and it’s got a load of other benefits too, if you’d like to read more about it this article on The OT Toolbox is really interesting (and it’s aimed at parents rather than academics so it’s totally readable I promise!)
