The toughest part of summers is to handle toddlers and young kids who feel house arrest and get bored every 10 minutes.
I am Kinshoo from Mom Learning With Baby and here I will share with you a super easy and no preparation craft activity to keep your kids engaged.
Making a picture collage is a great way to let young kids run their imagination and practise fine motor skills for those tiny fingers. And some “Me Time” for mommy is a bonus – “WIN-WIN”!!
A white sheet of paper
Few magazine cuttings – the more the better
Handover the stuff to kid and get some peace-time for yourself.
My 3-year old super-active boy is showing great affinity towards glue and sticking, so needless to say this activity was great fun for him.
I loved watching how carefully he was placing the different pictures of babies, school bus and rainbow on certain places. I asked him to glance all the pictures once and then start sticking after getting an idea of what will go where. And I am proud to say he amazed me.
Here is the video of this threenager of mine creating his own first picture collage.
Do make use of all those old mother and baby magazines and even super markets booklets that you have and let your child create a master piece.
One Tip: Don’t give any instructions to them. Let their creativity come out.
One more Tip: More pictures means more time in sticking means more free time for mommy. (means Happy Momma)
