Today's Fine Motor Fridays activity is a Back to School Craft using washi tape. Manipulating the tape onto the paper and ripping it, will work on those fine motor skills needed in many tasks- especially writing. After we made our Washi Tape Pencil Craft we headed down to our school room and added letter stickers to each pencil spelling out Big Brother's and Little Sis's name. Currently they are hanging up on display on our school room door!

To make your own Washi Tape Pencil Craft gather rolls of yellow and pink tape. I purchased mine at Hobby Lobby; I believe the brand is called "Spare Parts" and can be found in the scrapbook aisles.
Also, make a rough outline of a pencil for your child so he/she knows where to put the tape.
Fill the pencil outline with yellow tape on the bottom and pink tape on the top....
Once the kiddos are done, cut out the pencil outline....
And you have made a very simple back to school craft!
Don't forget to personalize it with letter stickers!
Happy New School Year!
