Toddler Paper Mosaic Art

Toddler Paper Mosaic Art

A few weeks back when my oldest was spending the week at grandma’s I decided to do a fun art project with my 2 yr old.  I wanted to do something totally geared toward her age and ability.  So I thought a paper mosaic would be perfect.

I also wanted to work on some colors with her, and since this has three different colors we were able to do that.  All you really need for this project is a blank paper you draw a picture on or a coloring page.  Then just tare up pieces of construction paper and glue the paper onto the page.

What we did so that we could work on learning colors is I put the glue on a part of the flower, like the stem and leafs.  Then I told her to just put the green paper on those parts.  I had her repeat the color for me a few times and then I let her place the green paper on the glue.

She was so proud of her finished flower that she had to give it to her sister when we picked her up from grandma’s!

Coloring Page or Drawing
Colored Construction Paper


 Draw a flower (or other design) on a sheet of paper (could also use a coloring page)
Tear up some colored construction paper in to small pieces
 Put glue on one area on drawing then let child pick color to go there
 Put glue on another area of drawing and let child glue the paper to that area
 Finish up same way with only adding glue to the area on the page you want the child to cover
Your Toddlers will be so proud of their artwork once done!

    What a great idea! I would never have thought of teaching them their colors while doing this, now I just need a toddler to do this with…

    I am extremely impressed with your writing skills and also
    with the layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did
    you modify it yourself? Anyway keep up the nice quality writing, it’s rare to see a great blog like this one nowadays.

    Like: 0A pool liner should have some type of warranty from fading for at least 5-10 years. Some do not, however, so it is impoatrnt to know your pool liner warranty.
