Save Those Packing Peanuts

Packing Peanuts | Sensory Activites for Toddlers & Preschoolers | MoneywiseMoms

Looking for a project to do on these long winter break days? Dig out some of the packing peanuts that came with your shipped holiday gifts. Set the kids up with glue, construction paper, and a bowl of styrofoam peanuts to make Snow Pictures.

I gave the toddlers some glue with a paintbrush; it's a good skill for them to work on and it's a less messy than letting them loose with a bottle of glue.

If you want to encourage eye-hand coordination, draw a snowflake (or any other shape) for the kids to glue their pieces onto. Or, you can encourage letter/number recognition by having them cover their initial or age.

What do you do with your extra packing peanuts?
