🌈 DIY SHAPES BOARD ⭕️
Make a colorful and educational shapes weaving board at home 🤩. Nicky (4Y) has been obsessed with weaving ever since she learned how to 💞. This #diy tool is a great way to introduce your kids to weaving. It follows one consecutive direction (kind of like connect the dots) and is on a large scale making it less challenging for little hands 🖐🏼. •
👉🏼YOU’LL NEED: -Cardboard
-Hot glue gun
-Shoe laces 👉🏼INSTRUCTIONS:
1️⃣Cut a few pieces of cardboard boxes for the base.
2️⃣Glue dry pasta in shape patterns using the hot glue gun. I chose to dye the dry pasta beforehand to make it colorful. To dye pasta: mix 1tbsp of vinegar, 1 cup of pasta and a few drops of food coloring in a bowl or ziplock bag. Lay out on a baking sheet and dry for at least 2 hours.
3️⃣Tie a not at the end of a shoe lace and instruct the child to weave through the pasta to make the shapes. Show them first and then let them explore. •
💡If you don’t want to dye pasta but still want to make it colorful, use colored shoe laces to give it a pop of color 🌈 #tagfromtheheart #mothercould
