As you’ll see, these sheets are not just for colouring in! There’s a space on each one for children to make their own picture – but they may need help. Here are some ideas you could try, even if fingers are too little to handle a pencil.

Printing – Using washable paint you could try printing with all kinds of objects; a cut vegetable, the end of a straw, the footprints of a toy figure, or even just fingers. ideas for printing activity

Stamping – You could make your own stamp by gluing a foam shape to the bottom of a cotton reel or a cork. If you don’t have a stamping pad, try making one from a piece of sponge and washable ink or food colouring.

Gluing –Many household objects and scraps could be good for collage – wool, string, cake cases, doilies, pasta, rice, beads, cotton wool, fruit netting, sweet wrappers, whatever comes to hand. All you really need to buy is a trusty glue stick.

 

ideas for gluing activity Choosing – Pictures from old magazines and catalogues can be used to make a collage – whether children are old enough to use scissors, or you do the cutting out for them. choosing images from magazines
Tearing – Tiny pieces of wrapping paper or tissue can be stuck down to make a colourful pattern. ideas for tearing activity Imagining – A circle of coloured paper could represent many things: a wheel, a biscuit, a ball or even a burger. If your child is a talker, you could chat about all kinds of ideas!

Have fun – of course, that’s the main thing!
