I found inspiration from this picture and decided to have a go at Fused Plastic Bag Art!
Found at this link:
This is brill and gives loads of info on what you can make from fused plastic bags but we’ve kept it as a nice and simple art activity for the toddlers to enjoy.
Cutting plastic with toddler scissors is hard so they needed help with this, but they are great with a glue stick and these are their creations (after I ironed them on a low heat between two pieces of grease proof paper).
Not bad for two, four and five year olds. You can probably guess who’s is who’s!
I love the randomness of toddler art, they ignore all conventions and clichés. Truly Art for Art’s sake!
Freeze almost anything in ice and give a toddler a play hammer. Instant problem to solve! The frozen water balloons where also a great sensory addition. Keep the balloon on and they go squashy as they melt or remove the rubber to reveal a frozen ball. Younger babies love the feel of the objects in the ice.
I think I will try fruit next time.
