I’ve been really focused on Instagram lately that I wasn’t able to update my blog for months. It’s already March, but I’m still posting about the month of February.
CHINESE DRAGON SENSORY PUZZLE
With Chinese New Year coming soon, we also started some Chinese New Year crafts and activities.
This is one of my favorite activities so far. It’s the first time that I did a sensory puzzle and Niko loved it. He filled the puzzle the way he wants it.
Red, yellow, green and white paints
Loose parts (I used red flowers, leaves and yellow split peas)
Hot glue gun and stick
I painted the dragon first and waited for it to dry. Once it’s dried, outline the painting with a black marker to pop up the colors.
Cut out small thin strips of cardboard and attach them using hot glue to the base cardboard. I placed mine unto the body part of the dragon since this is the area where I wanted Niko to fill with loose parts.
Serve to play.
Niko placed the red flowers on the red part of the dragon and the yellow split peas on the yellow part – at first.
Then he got creative and scattered the loose parts everywhere.
The final result looks pretty good, I think. 😛
