Shape Sort and Simple Ornament for Toddlers
We had some foam shapes we were planning on using for an ornament. Little Sweets sorted the shapes before me we made the ornament. She then decided to mix all the shapes together again before we made the ornament.
Simple Ornament for Toddlers
Little Sweets loves art activities. I thought it would be fun to have her make an ornament as a keepsake. I took a piece of paper and cut a hole in the middle. Then I placed a piece of contact paper on one side. Little Sweets placed foam shapes on top of the contact paper. ( You could use tissue paper or construction paper instead.) We talked about the shapes as she put them on the contact paper. Then I took another piece of contact paper and put it on top of the sticky sided contact paper. We put a hole through the circle and tied a string through. Little Sweets placed it on the tree. It looks pretty when the lights shine through it.
Homemade Star Puzzle
Little Sweets loves doing puzzles so I thought I would create one with her. I printed out two star shapes. Little Sweets and I colored one star and then I cut it out. Little Sweets placed the pieces of the star on top of the second star shape that I printed out and glued the pieces on. She needed a little help with the placement of some of the pieces. Afterwards, she decided the star needed glitter so she painted it with some glitter glue.
