Tearing the paper is an excellent activity for the development of fine motor skills. Take a paper that can be white or colored (Image 1).

Let the child take the paper with both hands. To understand the activity, start it with your hands, lean on the child’s hands and drag them in opposite directions (Image 2), and tear the paper.

Now a child can put small pieces of paper into a bowl (Image 3) and later of them make small balls (Image 4) and glue them to a paper (Image 5).

To sort small pieces of papers by the colors, we can use a muffin mold.
