I know I haven’t posted anything in a while. Managing household, keeping up with two extremely active kids and blogging is very draining. Plus the Big Thing will start her kindergarten from next week, so I have been spending a lot of time with children. I want to make the most of these last few days before she begins her school routine, which is why I decided not to post for a while. And once she’s in school, I will get back in to the flow, and post more often each week. InshaAllah!
Moving on, we did this easy activity with the Little Thing the other day. It’s extremely easy and does not require a ton of material. I like usual, used up the leftover material we had from our old projects.
What you will need:
- piece of cardboard
- colour papers
- glue stick
What I did:
- Cut a circle out of the cardboard piece. I used old carton.
- Cut triangles out of different coloured papers. I cut only four coloured papers. Because I didn’t want to confuse my daughter. If your child is a bit older, try using 5-6 different colours or may be different shades of same colour. Remember you can always vary the activities depending on your child’s ability and age.
- I then cut out thin strips of same coloured papers and glued them on to each clothespin. And that’s about it.
I put the wheel and the clothespins in front of her and asked her to try and match them.
Initially she had a difficulty in putting the clothespin on to the cardboard. But now she’s mastered it. She finishes it in less than 5 minutes. I hope your child will love this colourful activity as much as mine did.
