Materials: Construction paper, scissors, glue stick. Parent cuts out a figure, (simple is best), as well as hair, eyes, mouth, nose, clothing, shoes, as far as you want to take it. It is best to go ahead and glue the figure to a background paper to avoid ripping and provide a base.
Use: Separate items to choose from. i.e. hair first, then face, then clothing, but show them first how to properly use the glue stick and stick it like a sticker. Then let them experiment, learning to use the glue where the clothing goes. I initially supervised and helped on this one, but learned the outcomes were much better if I did not tell her where to put the items....i.e. a bubble skirt became a crown and it was wonderful!
