Today, we’ll create some magnificent monster faces! You’ll definitely want to add this to your list of Halloween crafts for fine motor skills this year. Kids will love creating their own funny monster faces! A great activity to encourage visual motor skills and attention to detail. Tape them up on your windows when you are done to scare away any unwanted Halloween visitors!
WHAT YOU’LL NEED: Free printables; pencils, crayons, colored pencils, or markers; embellishments of your choice, and glue
WHAT TO DO:
Print off the monster templates. Have the children attempt to complete the faces by copying what they see on the finished side of the face onto the other side. Visually scanning and copying from left to right is an important skill to develop for reading and writing readiness.
HOW TO CHANGE IT UP:
-Have the children color and add details to the faces to make them even more vibrant.
-Embellish the faces by adding candy corn or cheerio teeth, yarn for hair, felt for clothes/hats, m&m’s for eyeballs, etc. The options are endless and can most likely be choices straight from your pantry or craft table.
SKILL AREAS ADDRESSED: Fine motor skills, grasp, prewriting skills, visual motor integration, visual perceptual skills

I enjoyed reading your articles it’s give me valuable information http://dvdplayerwindows10.com thanks for share this wonderful article
Halloween (or All Saints’ Day) is an ancient festival of evil. It is most popular in the USA and the UK. Halloween is believed to come from the Celtic Samhain Festival, the Roman Pomona Day and the Christian All Saints Day. It strangely combines the Celtic tradition of honoring evil spirits and Christian worship of the saints. When I was studying at school, this holiday was celebrated by all the children, we dressed in monster costumes and begging for Halloween candy, now I am a college student and on this day we are just having a party.
Now I’m satisfied as I have finally reached your post.
