Why Craft With Toddlers

Toddler arts and crafts are excellent tools for developing motor skills, boosting dexterity, and improving hand-eye coordination. Besides, your little artist promotes self-esteem while building confidence through creative expression! Most importantly, messy not so messy form of art is a creative, educational, and fun way to promote innovation, encourage self-expression, and enhance decision-making skills.

So, grab the printable, and let’s get crafty!

What you will need to make Bubble-Wrap Craft

These are the materials you will need to make bubble-wrap seasons tree craft:

  1. a Seasons Tree printout (download below)
  2. paints ~ we are using tempera paints
  3. bio glitter optional
  4. recycled bubble wrap
  5. recycled TPR 🧻 (toilet paper roll)
  6. rubber bands

Instructions

First, print the seasons 🌳 tree template and cut out each tree (along the dotted lines), or leave all intact on one page.

*Arrange the cards in a circle to emphasize the cyclical nature of life. I started with winter, but feel free to start with the season of your choice. Just make sure that seasons are arranged in sequential order. 

Making a Stamp

To make a stamp to print with, cut four pieces of bubble wrap so that they are slightly larger than the end of a cardboard tube (TPR). Then, use an elastic band to secure the bubble wrap to the tube.

Next, squirt paints of your choice to represent each season.

Finally, dip the stamp into the paint and print it on a tree.

Video Tutorial

As a child presses the stamp down onto the paper, they will observe many exciting patterns made by the bubble wrap. Also, experiment with color mixing, for example, mixing fuchsia and white to make a pretty light pink of spring blossoms. Alternately, experiment with mixing yellow, orange, and red to replicate the fall foliage for the autumn tree. Ask your child to name the colors and/or describe the process.

Toddler arts and crafts are fun to develop motor skills, boost dexterity, and improve hand-eye coordination. Besides, your little artist promotes self-esteem while building confidence through creative expression!

The Importance of Sensory Crafting

  1. It stimulates the senses. (When multiple sensory stimuli are triggered, new synapses develop within a growing brain.)
  2.  It promotes cognitive growth.
  3.  It strengthens fine motor control by exercising small muscles of the hands. 
  4.  It promotes language development.
  5. Sensory crafts spur creative exploration.
  6.  Finally, sensory crafts increase focus and attention.

What is Process Art

Process art is a form of artistic expression where the focus lies on the process and not the end result. Messy arts and crafts using bubble wrap, a brush, a sponge, or finger painting are very important for early childhood development since they help the body and brain integrate tactile information creatively.

Process art is perfect for little artists since the focus lies on creating the work, not the outcome! During this fun artistic process, your child learns how colors work, especially color mixing, while developing spatial awareness and sensory integration. And it’s a creative, fun, and artistic exploration!
