Learning Shapes With StencilsPosted: February 8, 2012
Use some recycled cardboard scraps and trace simple shapes to cut out. I suggest using an x-acto knife up and out of reach of your little one. The nice thing about creating a stencil from corrugated cardboard is that it’s thick enough for your toddler to push against with his or her marker or crayon, without tearing easily. Encourage your child to hold stencil with one hand while following the edge with drawing tool in the other hand. Your toddler’s desire for repetition is just what you want here!!
Happy Valentine’s Day by the way!
