With this craft we break out the hole punchers again. Kids seriously love hole punchers, so this is a craft that is sure to please!
First, either you or your child, should punch holes all around the paper plate. Next you take some brown yarn, or string, and lace the holes. This is a great way to work on hand strength, fine motor manipulation and visual motor skills. Once the plate is laced you can either draw in your fruit and other fillers or you can have some options pre-made.
For the younger kiddos it may be a better idea to have some items pre-cut so all they have to do is use some glue to glue down their fillers. If your child is older you can have them practice their visual motor skills by having them draw in their own fillers. Other way this is a great holiday craft!
