Welcome to mamas studio, in this video I’m going to share with you three fun DIY activities you can do at home with your children. These activities encourage them to learn through playing motor skills and creativity.
What I love about these activities are the materials recycled or inexpensive to buy. So if you’re interested and want to know how to create these, please keep watching. All you’re going to need are five pieces of cards in different colors, five recycled yogurt containers, a pen and a cup. For tracing circles, a glue stick, and some craft scissors, you also need a variety of buttons beads, pom-poms and five different colors to match the colored cards.
Now your children can start sourcing the different objects and matching the colors into the containers, you can talk about the different colors with him as they play. I started doing this activity with my daughter, Amelia, she was about two, she’s torn three quarters. I think it helped her learn her colors, it has also helped with her motor skills from picking up all the tiny objects.
It’s important to remember not to put any pressure on your children to match the colors correctly, the main aim of this activity for them is to explore and have fun, small children learn best in a fun relaxed playful environment. So learning and playing should be both rolled into you.
For this activity, you’re going to need four pieces of felt in a range of bright colors, 12 colored buttons, you need to have three colored buttons to match each piece of felt, one pair of fabric scissors, a pair of nail scissors, needle and thread, a roller and pin.
This is an excellent activity to help small children develop motor skills to learn colors. Putting the Basson’s into the loops, which can be tricky for their little fingers, but practice makes perfect. Amelia had so much fun with this activity so that she wanted to keep practicing and practicing, even though she found this activity quite difficult at the beginning. I can see that helped her with her motor skills, now she’s learned to do the buttons up on her clothes and undo them all by herself.
For this last activity, you’re going to need some crayons and pencils on a variety of different colors, a mini pocket-sized glue stick, a variety of different colored small pom-poms, buttons, scrap fabric cut into tiny squares and shapes, some tinfoil in a range of different sizes of colored cards, paper and an old wallet with lots of different pockets and compartment like a customized art studio wallet.
They are small enough to slip into your handbag with enough fun to keep the children happy and creative for an amount of time, this is perfect to take on an aeroplane for a long flight.
