We work with shapes a lot in our home. Our daughter has a great imagination & I love watching her create different objects & characters out of assorted shapes. She tells me wonderful stories about her creations as she builds them.
I thought that it might be fun to put some of these shapes to use in an art project. Last night I gave Mai a little lesson in abstract art. “What is abstract?” I am not certain that mommy did a great job of explaining this to a 3 year old, but I gave it my best shot while showing her at the same time. We cut out a wide variety of shapes in assorted colors.
The first shape she reached for was the circle. “This is a head.” She glued it onto a piece of paper using a glue stick.
“My man has a hat too.”
She insisted that she put a face on her project, so we cut out a mouth, eyes & a nose.
She created her face & then strategically placed the rest of her shapes, giving me a play by play of what each shape represented along the way.
After they are finished, trim any pieces hanging over the edge of the paper. Let the glue dry & admire your child’s work. She did such a beautiful job on her project. This might have to be put in a frame.
