Pencil Shaving Art
Don’t just toss away all of those wooden pencil shavings; show your child how to turn them into works of art! Has she ever noticed that collected shavings often resemble certain objects? Encourage her to turn those imagined butterfly wings and fish scales into miniature 3-D designs. This activity requires a delicate touch—giving her fine motor skills a hefty work out.
