3D Art Projects You Can Do with Your Child
The world we live in is three-dimensional. But it might be a little challenging to teach children about the properties of 3D shapes. Only hands-on exploration through art and play can help your picture smart child better understand the properties of 3D shapes while also developing their creativity.
Below are some activities that you can do with your child at home.
- rocks of differing sizes
- acrylic paint
- googly eyes
- Set up your child's workstation with a disposable plate to easily contain some of the mess and move the wet rocks when your child is done.
- Let your child have fun painting, then allow the paint to dry.
- Once the paint is dry, you and your child can add the googly eyes to the rocks.
- Let your child play with the rocks! You can also use the pet rocks in future treasure hunts or add them into a sensory bin for sensory play. The possibilities are endless!
- child-friendly materials you can find around your house (i.e., paddle pop sticks, features, etc.)
For this activity, allow your child to create anything they want using the materials you laid out for them. This is an excellent way to engage your child in creative play and experimentation. You'll be amazed at what your child can create.
This art project is based on a popular children's story, "The Very Hungry Caterpillar" by Eric Carle.
- Yellow, green, and red construction paper
- Dyed pasta
- Single-hole punch
- Have your child cut out one-inch diameter paper circles with the red construction paper. You can prepare the pattern that they can follow.
- Punch a hole in each circle.
- Next, create the caterpillar's head using the other colored construction paper and glue. Punch a hole for the string later.
- Cut a piece of yarn for the necklace.
- Have your child thread a green pasta onto the yarn, followed by a red circle, then a green pasta, forming the caterpillar's body pattern.
- Once your child is happy with the length, add the caterpillar head last.
- Tie the ends of the string together to form a necklace.
