For the 'Letter of the week - E' we wanted to go for a messy art. So we created the world we live in - Earth.

For the ‘Letter of the week – E’ we wanted to go for a messy art. So we created our world – The Earth.

Things required for 'Earth' messy art are: Blue paper, pencil, scissors, green paint, shaving cream, glue, bowl or plate and Sponge (in case your child doesn't want to get his/her hands messy)

Make an oval on the blue paper with pencil. In a bowl, mix glue and shaving cream in 1:2 ratio respectively. Add as much green paint you want to. Once this mixture is ready, get your toddler/preschooler to start messing around! Smear hands in the mixture and make prints on the blue paper.

Once your child has had all the fun, leave it to dry and then cut it out in the oval shape you drew. A sensory play that teaches your child about the planet we live in!

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.
