Last week on It’s Playtime, I featured all about colors.
This week, its all about paper.
Sometime to do with both paper and colors:
As for some play ideas with paper?
My play pals punch, fold, rip, glue and paint paper in all sorts of ways!
(Chatterboxes at Puddles and Gumboots)
Who remembers playing with these chatterboxes as a little girl? I don’t remember everything we wrote on them, I just remember numbers and opening and closing them a lot. To reveal a secret wish come true (or something of the sort). I never knew they were called Chatterboxes, though! Makes sense to me!
Above, from left to right:
- Though not really paper, these painted plate mosaics at Mommy Labs are very creative and could easily be done with a paper plate as well!
- Hole punching at Paint on the Ceiling. I have yet to set Henry loose with a paper punch, I think the 3-hole punch would be easier than the hand ones – I bet he’d have a blast creating some colorful paper confetti!
- Glue a collage of ripped up paper onto a pre-drawn shape! Easy-peasy idea from Rainy Day Mum for the little ones that can’t draw themselves yet!
- Different styles of folded paper airplanes at Relentlessly Fun, Deceptively Educational. I can’t wait for Henry to get to this stage and fly these around the house. As a kid I remember having contests to see whose could go the furthest, loop the most and so on.
- Playtime co-host, Quirky Momma, made some decorative DIY collage letters with a mixture of materials, including tissue paper, yarn and fabric! I think I L-O-V-E them.
