Paper Collage Turkeys
Cut turkey shapes out of brown construction paper. Give your child the shape and scraps of colorful construction paper. Let your child tear the paper into small pieces. Glue the torn pieces on the turkey’s hindquarters to make colored feathers. Add eyes and other features with a marker.
Show your child how to choose a new screen saver to suit the season or a current interest. We like to put seasonal “Waldorf” pictures in a folder and choose that folder for the screen saver to cycle through. You can also choose the marquee option and type a message. We sometimes enter our Bible verse for the week.
When I was teaching toddler preschool, I loved doing this!
Tape a piece of clear contact paper, sticky side out, to a table or wall.
Set out bowls of “stickables”–felt scraps, tissue paper squares, crepe paper streamers, ribbon pieces, magazine pictures, foam pieces, feathers, etc.
Let your child explore the sticky paper and place the objects on the paper.
Preserve the collage with a second piece of contact paper on top of the first.
These make great suncatchers!
Vibrant Play Dough
1 c. flour
1/2 c. salt
2 tsp. cream of tartar
1 c. water
4 tsp. baby oil
Cook over medium hear, stirring constantly until the mixture forms a ball and pulls away from the sides of the pan. Cool and then knead until smooth. Divide the dough into 4 portions. Put on rubber gloves and then pour about 2 tsp of liquid watercolor into each ball. Knead until the color is evenly distributed. Store in an airtight container and put in the fridge for extended storage.
