The beauty of childhood is the power of imagination. Something this simple can be so many things to a child…
Hang the paper chain in your child’s room or toy room for a bright decoration.
What have you used paper chains for?
We explored making paper chains today using different forms of connecting them: Stapler and tape. We could have also used glue or stickers to connect them.
This is how i presented the activity to D.
Materials: Strips of colored paper, different items to connect the paper chains (tape and a stapler), Stickers to decorate the paper chain
Here we used double sided tape
Stapler (this one must be supervised. I made sure to help with the stapler because it can be dangerous for a toddler.)
Add stickers or decoration (and to work on pincer grasp)
We connected all of them and ended up with a chain that looked like the pics above… imagine the possiblities… glitter… colored rice… colored salt, etc.
(We will definately be revisiting this activity using different decorative enhancements.)
