Toddler Group Tuesday

The very first day back to toddler group after the summer is always quiet. It's best to start with a quick, simple, non-messy craft project so this week we have been making magic wands.

  • A card or funky foam shape (we have used pre-cut foam for speed, but you can easily cut your own)
  • Tongue depressers (like lollipop sticks, but larger)
  • Glue or tape
  • Assorted stickers
We have used pre-cut stars, butterflies and flowers. You can use any shape you can think of.
Glue or tape the shape to the top of the tongue depresser and then decorate all over with stickers.

This can be taken further by using glitter glue pens, decorating with collage pieces, sequins, and any other craft supplies you might have around. Ribbons can be tied around the top of the stick, just below the shape.

Another variation is to print patterns on the shape with paint and objects like cotton reels. Sprinkle with glitter whilst the paint is still wet.
