With Halloween coming tomorrow, we are officially done posting Halloween crafts and activities. It didn’t feel right to start with the Thanksgiving themed crafts just yet, so what is a not so crafty momma to do? To celebrate our upcoming trip to Disney (we will have 120 long days left as of tomorrow), I decided to work on shapes and colors with a shape micky mouse activity!
- Construction Paper (Red, Black, Yellow, and White or Grey)
As with most of what we post here, the prep work is super simple. You will need one bigger black circle along with two little ones, two little yellow circles, and a red half circle. After that, it is time for your little one to put it together. I said the shape and color before I handed my toddler each piece and encouraged her to say it back. She is still pre-verbal, but it is still a great way to develop basic sounds. If your child already has a basic concept of shapes and colors, try letting them tell you what each piece is!
The end result will be an adorable little Mickey Mouse. This will not take long, but it is a great way to learn about shapes and colors.
