There’s no doubt about it, kids love messy art projects. The great news is that they can make almost anything around the house into a brilliant masterpiece of art with one ingredient: glue! Recently visiting from the states, my mother-in-law brought me a copy of First Art: Art Experiences for Toddlers and Twos, a book that was high on my wishlist. Finding inspiration there and in my collection of leftover crafting supplies, I added a few dabs of glue to a rose colored sheet of construction paper and demonstrated how to attach crafting knickknacks to the centers of the glue dots.
Summer Elizabeth then went to town gluing buttons, beads, yarn bits, sequins, and Bible verse cards wherever her little heart desired, overlapping permitted. Much glue was squirt and lots of gleaming smiles emanated. We had fun & so will your toddler!
Go ahead, give glue art a try!
