Faemom Crafts for Toddlers, Preschoolers and Kids

Posts Tagged ‘construction paper

(I have read several places about taking those magnet business cards and doing something with them, like gluing pictures on them.  I decided on art work for the boys to do.  As my b0ys love coloring and stickering, they enjoyed doing this.)

Things you need:

  • Business magnets
  • Craft foam or construction paper
  • Markers, stickers, anything else you want to decorate with
  • Scissors
  • Black marker
  • Glue (craft or hot)

Trace the business magnets on the craft foam or construction paper with the black marker.

 Have the child decorate the shape.  Cut the shape out.

(I have also heard of moms who make a scan of the child’s artwork and print it in business card size.  This would work for the magnets too.)

(This is a very easy craft and non-messy.  The boys loved doing this so much that we’ve done it several times and I’m working on new ideas.)

Things you need:

  • Blue construction paper (or water looking scrapbook paper)
  • Sea stickers
  • Markers (optional)
  • Plastic wrap
  • Tape

Give the child the piece of paper and the stickers to create an underwater theme. 

Pretty water paper (blue construction paper works just as well)

If the child wants, (s)he can draw seaweed, sand, and any other sea creatures.

When the child is done, cover the paper with plastic wrap to give the illusion that one is looking into an aquarium.  Tape the plastic wrap onto the paper.

Nursery Rhymes

Many teachers have told me how important nursery rhymes are for child development. Jack be nimble. Jack be quick. Jack jump over A candlestick
