BUILDING SHAPES

DIY toys shape building blocks

We love making our own toys from recycled materials, this project is 2 activities in one! The first part is the messy process art painting of the shapes and the second part is building with your shapes. it's also great for different age children, my 2yr old loved doing all the messy painting and my 5yr old loved building with the finished shapes. This project is inspired by a fab project we found on the awesome Handy With Scissors blog.

MATERIALS: Thick cardboard, paint, craft knife and scissors.

TUTORIAL: Cut all your shapes from cardboard making them all similar dimensions, all of ours had approximately a 12cm diameter. Then begin painting your shapes.

We let our shapes dry and then painted the other side as well.

When the paint is dry cut slots in each side using a craft knife. The slots need to be a quarter of the width of your shape.
