TP Roll Snake activity idea

This activity works on multiple skills. The child will work on motor planning through a craft activity that has multiple steps.

If using a tissue paper, the child can practice cutting skills by cutting small pieces and work on finger strengthening as he/she crumbles the pieces into little balls.
