Classified: Easy and great for ages 2 up.
For ages 2-3: Use larger rectangles to create their igloo. This is easier for them to manipulate and glue as well as easier to count.
For preschool and up: Use smaller rectangles and a larger sheet of paper for more of a challenge.
- 2 pieces of blue construction paper (either 9x12" or 12x18" depending on age and skill level)
- White paper cut into rectangles (size and amount may vary depending on age and skill level)
- White crayon
What to do:
- Using a white crayon, draw (or download template and trace) an outline of an igloo onto the blue construction paper. Cut it out.
- Depending on what age you are working with (I have examples of both), have your child start building their igloo by filling in the outline with cut rectangles.
- Glue into place once satisfied. Flip over and trim off the excess white rectangles.
- Glue onto second piece of blue construction paper.
- Have them draw a picture of himself in the picture and create a scenery.
- Depending on the age of your child, count with them or have them count how many rectangles it took to make their igloo.
- Write (or download template here and cut and paste) "How many rectangles? ___" in the right hand corner of the completed picture.
- If you are working with a child who can write, have them fill in the blanks with the correct number. If not, write in the number and have your child identify it.
- Hang and enjoy!
