Happy Friday! I hope all you moms are hanging in there. Just a quick toddler art project to entertain your kid today. I learned this art project from My Museum Monterey. Olivia loved making it a few months ago so I thought I would do it again and share it with you all.
Toddler Art Project
What you need:
- A small cube box
- Assorted felt, construction paper, and foam sheets
- double-sided tape
- plastic shapes
Make six different shapes. I use a few plastic shapes, a few foam shapes and a few velvet shapes so Olivia has different textures to explore.
Make corresponding shapes out of construction paper. I trace the shapes and cut them out. Make sure they are the same color and shape of the above pieces.
Make a box and apply a small dab of tape to each side. If you have an older kid they can do this themselves. I do it for Olivia.
I then put the first set of pieces inside the box.
Allow your little one to stick the construction paper shapes to the box. One on each side.
When they are done use the cube as a learning game. Take the piece out of the box and roll it like a dice. Have your little one match the spare piece shape to the shape face up on the box. Olivia can do this for an hour! She loves it.
I hope this helps make a day next week just a little brighter while we all shelter in place.
