  Gluing Art  

Shell Art
Collect an assortment of shells. (Find shells on the beach or purchase them inexpensively at craft stores.) Let your child glue the shells to a small cardboard square. Show your child how to hold the shells in place for a count of ten to make sure they stay put.
Tissue Paper Art

Have your child tear colorful tissue paper into small pieces. Help your child brush diluted glue (2 parts glue to 1 part water) on the sides of a clear-plastic cup. Let your child arrange the tissue paper pieces all over the cup. Brush on a final coat of glue, and allow the cup to dry completely. Poke a small hole in the bottom of the cup and attach a length of yarn. Hang the cup where the sun can shine through it.
 Sand Art
Give your child a sheet of heavy paper or cardboard, a dish of sand, and a small bottle of glue. Let your child squeeze the glue all over the paper, making designs. While the glue is still wet, have your child sprinkle sand all over the glue. Shake off the excess sand. Let your child add more glue designs as desired. When the glue has dried, encourage your child to explore the textures of his or her 3-dimensional artwork.
Wood Art

Collect a variety of small pieces of wood. Set out the wood scraps and a bottle of wood glue. Let your child glue the pieces of wood together to create a picture, a sculpture, or whatever type of creation he or she would like.
