Multi-Media Fashion Design Craftivity

Over the past few weeks, we have been working on crafts and activities that encourage our toddler to explore her sense of self identity. Recently, we did this craftivity that encouraged creativity and fine motor skills. Since the goal is to encourage creativity, you can use any materials you’d like! I’m going to tell you how we did it, but you can use whatever you have laying around!

Materials We Used

  • Two Pieces of Construction Paper (I used white and then let my daughter pick out the other color from a pack of multicultural construction paper)
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Googly eyes
  • Markers
  • Cut up tissue paper
  • Assorted gems and such

I started by drawing the shape of a person and cutting it off. If you can not freehand this, a quick google search will be able to give you something you can print out and trace.

Next, I gave my daughter the person shape to glue onto the white paper.

After that, I gave her markers so that she could draw her person’s face and hair. She is two, so she didn’t give her person much detail, but slightly older children can draw parts of the face. After she was done with that, I helped her glue on googly eyes. Lastly, I gave her the other materials and let her glue them on however she wanted. I offered as little guidance as possible.

This craftivity is perfect for kids aged two to five. It can be done at home or in a classroom setting. It is a perfect way to use up miscellaneous craft supplies you have laying around. The end result will be as unique as your child!

Book Suggestions

Small children learn best when activities or art projects are paired with a good book!

Our toddler had tons of fun dabbling in fashion design and we hope your little one enjoys it as well!

  3. This mutlimedia fashion design is super creative. It’s great to use items around the house that need to be recycled. As part of a school project, my son needs to make a puppet out of a cardboard cylinder such as the toilet paper or paper towels. We’ll have fun with that.

    1. When I worked in a classroom setting, I saved all of our toilet paper and paper towel rolls for classroom projects. It drove Mr. Not So Crafty crazy.
