Toddlers love to glue and stick. Keep an eye out for interesting materials to use with different textures and colours. My son made this award cup at the Kaleidoscope Children's Centre for Father's Day. This wonderful centre, works alongside families with children five and under, providing information, advice and a wide range of services.

Punch two holes on either side.
Set out a pot of buttons in different colours and sizes as well as some pieces of silver effect foil.
Your child can now glue and stick buttons and foil wherever they want. Some kids might want a mostly silver effect with 'jewel' buttons but my son was button crazy.

Buttons are great for little fingers to pick up and stick down


Picking up and sticking on the buttons and foil is a good way to improve fine motor skills as well as having some fun.

Cut a pipe cleaner in half and twist each end into the punched holes to make the handles.
