Although my son (2.5yrs) doesn’t yet understand the concept of years, I still wanted to do something to celebrate the start of 2014 with him. So here is our new year art for toddlers.

For this craft I used:
- White cardstock
- White contact paper (although clear would work fine too)
- Print-out of 2014 numerals
- White glue
- Assorted glitter and sequins
I printed out the 2014 numerals – although you can skip this stage if you can draw them freehand. I cut them out and then used them as a template to cut them out of the contact paper. The tricky part here is getting them the right way round – you want to cut them out of the contact paper with the backing paper facing up.
I also cut out some stars. Then I peeled off the backing paper, applied glue to the non-sticky side, then glued it to the white cardstock so that the numbers were the right way round.
I placed the card inside a foil tray and provided F with assorted glitters and sequins for him to sprinkle over.
Then we gave it a good shake and I tipped off the excess glitter. Pretty!
