Tissue Paper Craft Improves Hand Dexterity Skills for Preschoolers
Tissue Paper crafts are great crafts to use with preschoolers. They aren’t too messy and it takes a while to form little balls of tissue paper and glue to the paper. It’s also a good way for them to practice hand dexterity skills while creating nice, three dimensional results. This particular craft is a good example of abstract art.

The corucopia, or horn of plenty craft project is an easy kid’s craft and fun to make. The cornucopia, or horn of plenty, is placed on the table to show the bounty of the fall harvest. As a result, fruits and vegetables adorn our holiday tables and symbolize the wealth of food for the coming year.
This fun and super easy craft will decorate your door or refrigerator this Fall. What I like about this craft is that you can color the apples any colors you want: red, green or yellow or keep them all one color.
This open-ended craft is left up to you and your little artist. You can use watercolor, crayon, chalk or paint. This is a really great project for “do a dot” artists too! Show us your projects so we can upload them onto Kraftykid’s artist gallery. Mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
