We are having such a wonderful time with our Australia unit! I find a good portion of my inspiration on Pinterest and my Instagram feed. I came across this activity from Danya Banya and decided to do it with my preschooler. It really is super easy, and turned out super cute! I loved walking across the Harbor Bridge when I visited Sydney six years ago, and this activity brought back good memories.
- White paper plates (1)
- White cups (2)
- Black Sharpie
Cut the paper plate in half.
With the sharpie, draw lines to resemble the bridges’ metal design. Below is a photo I took in 2012 for some inspiration…
My kiddo did her best, but she’s still getting better at her hand control when it comes to art. Of course I wanted to join in this activity. It was too much fun!
Next step is to cut notches into the sides so they can fit into the cups.
Then cut a small notch in the cups:
You’ll then fit the paper plate into the notches on the cups to create your bridge!
Lastly we drew little windows on the front to complete the look.
I LOVE how it turned out! Not too bad for a three-year-old!
Here are both of ours. 🙂
