Fun Day Monday

Hi there,

A quick and easy activity for you today…. It was something that we did in my childminding service on Friday and it was a great success. It does involve the children using scissors so you will need to assess whether your little one is ready to safely use them themselves.

For this activity you will need the following:

  • Children’s scissors
  • Old cards
  • Paper
  • Glue stick

and you need to do the following:

  • Firstly cut the old cards into shapes that your child will like….. as it was Valentine’s Day on Friday we did hearts
  • Give the shapes to your little one to cut up using their scissors and let them cut them up into pieces
  • Once they have finished give them the piece of paper and the glue stick and encourage them to stick the pieces onto the paper to make a new shape and picture

Have a fun day!
