Make a special collage for special occasions such as Mother's Day.
What You Need:
• Old magazines or newspapers
• Scissors (for adult use only)
• Glue sticks or bottle of white glue (such as Elmer’s Glue®*)
What To Do:
1. Look through old magazines and newspaper with your child for pictures of things that mothers do.
2. Cut them out.
3. Show your child how to use the glue and help him glue the pictures on a sheet of paper. He may need your help using bottled glue.
4. Using the pictures as a starting point, ask him to talk about what mothers do for their children.
1. Make collages of what other family members do. For example, find pictures showing what fathers do.
2. Look for pictures of teachers, police officers, construction workers, and others. Talk about what they do.
Safety Alert: Scissors should be used by adults and kept out of reach of young children. Toddlers do not yet have the coordination to use adult scissors. When your child gets older (three to four years old), use blunt child-sized scissors to let him practice cutting.
