Bottle top pictures

A fun and simple way to make a picture, which is also great for developing creativity and fine motor skills.

We have been collecting plastic bottle tops so that princess could use them for making pictures, we had a variety of sizes and colours. Princess tipped them out onto the table and first she sorted them into colour groups. Then she chose a piece of card to stick them to.

 I showed her that she could use the different tops to make a picture (this my attempt at boat sailing in the sea and a palm tree, in case you didn't guess!) But she preferred a more more feestyle approach and laid them out in her own pattern patternand glued each one down carefully.  The thing that impressed me during this activity was to concentration she used in remembering which were glued and which weren't.

I think the end result looks pretty cool, what do you think?
