Making A Boat

Finally we spent the day at home and we decided that today we’re gonna make a boat. My 2 yo son, he’s just into the song of row row your boat right now.. so let’s make this activity and you can sing the song too while you’re doing it 😉

Materials :

  • I used aluminium foil (food container) for the boat. You can find anything else that works!
  • Coloured tissue paper
  • Sticker (optional)
  • Origami paper
  • Ice cream stick
  • Playdough

Instructions :

  1. Glue the aluminium foil and stick the tissue paper on it.
  2. To make the the sail, fold the origami paper diagonally in half to come up with a triangular sail. Don’t forget to attach the ice cream stick inside the paper and glue it.
  3. You can also decorate your sail by drawing, coloring or put stickers.
  4. Put the playdough inside the aluminium foil and attach the sail on it.
It’s very easy right? And the rest let your child play with his/her imagination!

Let’s Get Messy with Coffee Powder {Sensory Play}

Invitation to play : look who’s happy of getting messy today?? 😃😃
I let my 2yo son to find some beads covered in the coffee powder.
Can you imagine all the mess? (No, I didn’t take a picture of it) 😜 but don’t worry moms 😅 messy kids are more likely to be better at learning, a study has found. Toddlers who grasp
and taste objects are also better at retaining words. So… Let’s give it a try!!
Materials :
  • Beads
  • Little bin
  • Coffee powder
What to practice on your kids:
  • Eye-hand coordination
  • Touch and smell the coffee aroma #sensoryactivity
  • Color recognition with the colorful beads
To make it more fun, I let him play with his tractors which is also good for encouraging his imagination.

A Butterfly Collage

Butterfly.. Butterfly happy all day, Butterfly.. Butterfly fly fly away..

(Butterfly Song-Barney)

Can you guess what are we going to make for today activity? Yeess.. We’re making a Butterfly.
So here’s what I did. I made a butterfly shape and cut it out from the white construction paper.
And then I gave my son the colored origami paper for him to tear, glue and stick it on the butterfly shape. Both tearing and sticking the paper are great ways to strengthen fine motor skills. Some kids may find tearing the paper a bit challenging. But yet this is a simple and fun craft to do and will keep them busy for a bit. My son enjoyed this activity very much.
Materials :
  • White construction paper
  • Colored origami paper
  • Glue
  • Scissor

Using do-a-dot printables to learn shapes {Kids Activity}

As we did this activity before, do-a-dot printables can also be used to work on things like learning shapes. On this worksheet, I drew one of four different shapes in each of the circles. I then drew those same shapes on dot stickers. With this set up, you can ask your kids to match the dot stickers to the shapes on the worksheet. Although I drew triangles, circles, squares, and hearts, you could use any shapes you like in order to adjust this to your child’s skill level. For toddlers and preschoolers who still working on one-to-one correspondence, provide them with a do-a-dot worksheet and a do-a-dot art marker. Encourage your child to use the marker to make one dot mark in each of the circles on the page.
Materials :
  • Printable dot art pages
  • Round stickers
  • Art markers
This activity will also help our children to develop their fine motor skills and hand eye coordination.
