Hanging Lids

Activity for an individual child

Age group: 18-40 months

Duration of activity: 15 minutes

Materials:

  • Lids from frozen juice cans
  • Hole punch
  • Pieces of yarn
  • Glitter, sequins, stickers, tinsel
  • White craft glue

This is a simple way to create attractive ornaments. You may also use plastic lids, although it is harder to punch a hole in them.

  1. Punch a hole ½ inch in from the edge of each lid. String and loop a piece of yarn so that your child can hang her ornament.
  2. Have your child decorate both sides of the lids with the glitter and craft materials.
