Decoupage: An art technique perfect for developing your child’s fine motor skills

Decoupage is an art technique used to decorate an object using paper cut outs and glue. This is a great activity to develop your child’s fine motor skills. Older preschool children can use scissors to cut magazines, newspapers or colored papers while younger preschool children can use their fingers to tear paper (instead of cutting).

Here are the materials needed for decoupage:

  • glue
  • brush
  • magazines, newspaper or colored paper

It is easy to do it. Let your child cut or tear paper. Next, allow them to use brush to spread glue on the object they are decorating. Then, let them stick the paper on the object.

Below is an example of how decoupage looks like. The children decorated the tissue roll using colored paper and magazine.
