Installation Art | CMSMatHome

Today, create an art installation at home with this favorite Toddler Wednesday activity (any age is welcome–and encouraged–to join in on the fun!).

CMSMatHome - Installation Art

Position two chairs close together to serve as a base.

• Engage children in picking out materials they want to use. Will it be yarn, ribbon, scarves, paper, cardboard, or something else?

• Explore the placement of materials connecting the chairs. Is it over, under, around, up, down, or inside?

• Discuss colors, textures, and shapes as you look at this work of art!
