Another weekend at home and thanks to my pregnancy that left me grumpier and weak, I didn’t have the energy to run around and play with my daughter as she would have liked it. So, we had to settle for another craft activity with color paper, glue and scissors.
This activity also helped her in recognition of shapes – rectangle, square, circle and semicircle.
We looked at clip art images of trains and selected the easiest one in terms of shapes.
We chose black for the wheels, white for the windows and some random colors for the engine and the train compartments. With a ruler and a lid, I cut the shapes out of the corrugated paper.
Looking at the clip art image, she fled the pieces on to the sheet of brown paper and voila, our paper train!
