No Glue Window Collage Toddler Activity

This activity has bags of learning potential and is great fun. You can create a collage with any age toddler, using any number of materials from around the house from cotton wool to bottle tops and pop sticks. Today we are exploring paper and card.

For this activity you will need:

Sticky back plastic,
Scrap paper/ card e.g old birthday cards and sweet wrappers,
Toddler scissors,
Optional extras are paper crimpers and shape cutters.

My two little munchkins set about cutting and crimping paper and card developing their hand strength and fine motor skills.

The fruits of their labour get stuck to their sticky window. Will (4) puts stars in a row counting them and Poppy (2) places objects randomly.

Things progress to outside and some flowers from the garden are added by Poppy and Will uses a glue stick to add more layers to the collage.

It’s lovely to have the light come through the collage and have the backdrop of the garden. The best thing about this collage is it can be changed about and worked on all day! 🙂
