Halloween Art Projects – Mummy String Art

Halloween art projects can be super fun to make during the spooky season and today we have a fun and easy halloween craft for preschoolers that you will love. This is quite simple to make and involves a little halloween painting using your child’s foot and encourages little ones to develop fine motor skills.

How Halloween Art Projects Can Help Develop Fine Motor Skills

Fine motor skills are really important skills for children to develop. The more fun Halloween activities you can give your child that gets them cutting, drawing and using the smaller muscles in the hands, fingers and wrists the better.

Children develop fine motor skills by writing, holding small items, buttoning. turning pages and making things with their fingers. Making Halloween crafts with kids at any season is certainly a great way to help them develop the little skills they need to learn and there are so many fun Halloween art projects to choose from.
