A torn papercraft is where kids tear the paper and then glue it to make a craft. Torn paper crafts are a great way to build up fine motor skills while doing a craft. It builds up the finger to help with holding a pencil.

How we made the Torn Paper Apple Trees

Glue on the Grass

They glued on the green hill the apple tree would be. The green paper was cut out and ready for them to put on the blue construction paper.

They put the glue on the back of the green paper and then placed in on the bottom of the blue paper.
