This is a fantastic project for little ones as it is just about gluing and making patterns. The cardboard tray base also helps keep the mess contained! I love the freedom this project allows and you really don't need any fancy craft materials, just raid the recycling box and anything else you can find around the house.
MATERIALS: Shoe box lids (or make your own trays from cardboard), PVA glue and lots of interesting shapes to stick.
TUTORIAL: Give your little ones the glue, box tray and let them make a pretty mess! I put all the parts on a tray and then just let them get creative.
