While cutting tile takes a bit of skill there are some other ways to get a similar effect. I recently coordinated a craft project for a group of kids. The next time you need a rainy day activity or some quiet time to yourself, try some paper tile mosaic.
All you need is: colored paper, scissors, a glue stick or two and a marker.
I used a paper cutter to get ready for the group but you can have your little ones cut their own paper and it’s a great fine motor activity (that’s the Occupational Therapist in me).
Use the marker to make a basic shape drawing of something simple like; a flower, truck, butterfly, train, tree, fish, kite, anything that you can think of. Then the kids can use the cut paper and glue stick to “color” the picture.
This kept my girls busy long enough to allow me to type this post, make a pair of earrings and I started sewing a purse.
