This is one of my favorite toddler programs and it is always on my schedule every summer at the beginning of summer reading. You can check out past programs here, here, or here. I love it because each creation turns out different. Plus, most of my parents end up going shopping right after the program for their own art supplies to make cool creations at home. After all, every house needs a bottle of glitter glue!
Our shape this year is a fancy star shape to fit our Every Hero Has a Story summer reading program theme. To make the shape, I printed the star shape using Microsoft Publisher on white cardstock. As kids came into the room, I handed them two star shapes and explained that one would go home with them and one would stay with me. Each of our stations had a different art supply.
This year's stations include:
- Glitter Glue from Discount School Supply-I really like these bottles because the young hands are able to easily squeeze them. Please note-you can never have too much glitter glue.
- Watercolor Paints from Discount School Supply
- Star stickers from Oriental Trading
- Mini stampers from Lakeshore Learning
