After cutting out an "A" shape out of heavy tag board, the children ripped up pieces of scrap papers to glue on. We were going to stop there, but then we thought they needed a stem and leaf! How perfect!! **Ripping/Tearing is an excellent activity for young children. It really helps develop the strength in their tiny hands.
