This is the first DIY cut and paste crafts activity that me and my little one have done together. It was so simple and yet so much fun that I have decided to share my experiences by writing this blog.

Usually its difficult to keep him engaged in an activity for some time but his one kept him busy for over half an hour. Believe me that’s a reward in itself. So I thought why not share this happiness with other fellow mommies looking for how to keep a toddler engaged.  🙂 ..

Step 3 – Cut out small triangles of another colored paper using a scissor. If you have post it notes lying around you can use that as there will no need of applying glue stick every time.

Step 4 – Let your toddler stick the triangles on the fish cut out. In the beginning I used to apply glue and give it to my little one but by the end of activity (Much to my surprise) he was doing both the activities himself.

Well that’s it actually. We loved this activity so much that we are making a Lion next. Check out the pic of our Lion in progress ..
