When school closes for the summer holidays, your toddler or preschooler is going to need something to do to stay busy and channel their energy. School break is the perfect time to bond with your child over some kid-friendly and fun activities. Need some ideas? Here are five art projects to do during the school holidays:

For toddlers:

  1. Get creative with homemade play-dough.  You can make your own scented play-dough for your toddler. Mix flour, water, vegetable oil, salt, cream of tartar and powdered drink mix for a beautiful, colorful and sweet-smelling dough.
  2. Create art with shredded paper.  Get some non-toxic glue, some big pieces of white paper and some piles of old giftwrap and magazines. Rip them up into little pieces (about one to two-inch square) and lay them out on a table. Your toddler can create their own artwork by gluing the colorful bits of paper on to a plain white piece of paper or a piece of cardboard.
  3. Make your own photo frame.  Cut a blank card into the perfect frame size for a photo and help your toddler color, paint and stick on all sorts of different bits and pieces to make their own photo frame. Once finished, display it proudly in your living room or office.

For preschoolers:

  1. Make edible finger-paint.  Children love finger painting so how about a paint your child can actually eat? Just mix a few drops of food coloring with vanilla pudding and they are ready to paint!
  2. Make a bowl with clay.  Craft clay is a fun invention! Get some in different colors and help your preschooler make a decorative bowl or dish. Then simply put in the oven (follow the instructions on pack) and you have a little keepsake.

When it is not possible to be with yourchild over the school break and you need a place for them to go where they can be nurtured and engaged with fun activities, bring them to Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy in McKinney, TX. We offer programs for children as young as infancy. We also have a nature themed summer camp program for ten weeks of fun. Contact us today to learn more about enrolling your child.
