Snowman from empty plastic bottle

17 Dec

An easy peasy Christmas craft for toddlers. A classic decoration around the Xmas tree.

Its never too early to teach children how to recycle and reuse things to keep the environment clean and green.

Things required for Snowman craft are: empty plastic bottle preferably with red color lid, white paint, red and black glitter glues (I used blue since I didnt have black).

Get your toddler/preschooler to paint the bottle white. Leave it to dry.

Early Learning goes a long way in your child’s education and upbringing. Amongst the very important things to learn for a toddler or preschooler are hand-eye coordination, 5 senses, practice fine and gross motor skills, balance, and muscle development. A lot of this can be practiced at home with crafts and activities under adult’s supervision. Playing with colors, pots and pans, brushes, sponges, glue; reading books, pretend play, all seem like child’s play to us but are actually helping your toddlers/preschoolers develop their minds and bodies.

Please make sure all the activities mentioned in this blog are done under adult supervision. If your children are still putting things in their mouths, then avoid activities with small particles that can cause chocking hazards. Also, all steps in the articles that involves a pencil, knife, pair of scissors or any sharp objects should be performed by an adult.
