I was thinking about Manda's post on Shape Pictures and realized that I could easily do a snow man shape picture!
I would say two and up. Prior to two and your child would need a lot of asssistence, but you can always do it!
- fine motor skills
- Pieces of paper cut into shapes. With the older preschooler, you can draw the shapes and let him cut them himself.
- Optional: Glitter
- Cut out shapes or draw shapes for your child to cut out. For each picture, I used three white ciricles (three different sizes), one large white square, one black square, one black regtangle, five black small circles (eyes and buttons), one yellow circle, one green triangle, one brown rectangle, two brown rectangles (for arms), one orange triangle, and one blue rectangle.
- Set out supplies
- Introduce the shape pieces to your child. Talk about what shape each piece is.
- Tell your child you are going to use these shapes to create a snowman picture.
- You might need to put the pieces together to show the child how they will all come together.
- If using glitter, apply glitter to snowman pieces or snow piece. I used glitter to be able to see the snow man better since he was white on white.
- While the glitter dries, assemble the other pieces.
- Glue the picture together!
