The "Act" of Tearing Develops Small Muscles

      Sometimes the simplest of activities can be challenging for a young student. It took quite a while for this little one to tear her red construction paper into pieces in order to fill in an outline of an apple. She was so proud of her picture afterwards. The muscles in her hands are still developing but training such as this distracted her from the arduous nature of the task. Because art doesn't feel like work to the young, teacher's often use it to enhance child development.

The simple act of tearing construction paper may present a real challenge.
