Have some fun with your toddlers designing purses with sticky notes and envelopes!
Just take a small envelope and some different colored sticky notes. ( If you don’t have sticky notes, you can always use construction paper and tape. )
For the circles, you’ll need to create a pattern to cut ( I used the bottom of a cup)…so that you can keep the top part of the sticky note as a strip. See photo. Cut a few sticky notes like this. and then start from the bottom of the front of the envelope and add rows till you get to the top.
For the fringe purse, just take a few sticky notes together and cut strips up, leaving about a half inch at the tops of the notes ( the sticky part). Then start at the bottom of the envelope and stick each note across. Do another row in a different color if you wish. Repeat until you get to the top of the envelope. Beautiful!
Tips/Suggestions for Toddlers:
- Talk about the colors your toddler likes
- Talk about the shapes you see
- Talk about how the notes are sticky or how they feel
- Put some coupons inside for that next trip to the grocery store!
