This is an easy, NO MESS activity (I know that will appeal to many!) that even a small baby can easily get involved with. I let the girls choose a piece of coloured felt each (yes, baby chose her own colour too!) and they started to create a collage by selecting the foam shapes and sticking them down.
Big Sister meanwhile worked really hard to try and get the backings off by herself. Great (subtle) fine motor skill practise!
And here are the mini-masterpieces!
I absolutely LOVE how Cakie’s one seems to burst off the edges of the felt canvas! Energetic and vibrant art at its best. I’m thinking of maybe punching holes and threading ribbon through to hang these up (if I can find any wall space to place them!)
This activity is good for:
* creativity and imagination
* free expression and decision making
* exploring a range of textures and tactile experiences
* talking about shapes and colours
* developing fine motor skills
