Ready for some holiday toddler art? I had so much fun decorating the playroom for Christmas this year and seeing how much nugget loved it. One of those decorations was a paper chain and the paper chain lasted about one day as a scarf before he realized he could rip it up, which was also fun haha. What to do with ripped up paper? Turn the paper chain into art!

Paper Chain Art

What you’ll need:

  • Construction paper
  • Scissors
  • Stapler
  • Printer paper
  • Glue
  • Destructive toddler

Cut the construction paper into strips and staple together to make a chain. Let your toddler enjoy and possibly even use as a countdown. Inevitably, it’ll get ripped up and you can turn the ripped up pieces into an activity with your toddler.

Put down a piece of paper and some glue across the paper. Let them put the pieces on the paper however they want. If any are layered on top of each other, glue them down too. Once it dries, hang the art!

Nugget got a huge smile on his face when he saw his art in a frame in the playroom the next day. We made 3 art pieces with the scraps and still had fun using other paper scraps as confetti.
