We have a new addition to our animal CD art and craft! Today, we are featuring CD Giraffe Art and Craft for Toddlers!
Every time my nephew plays with his miniature toy lion, he always has another toy animal in tow- the giraffe! I guess even in toy land, sidekicks exist. 😛
Watching my nephew play, he always roars and does aggressive actions while playing with the lion. And then he’s more gentle and slow when playing with the toy giraffe.
I’m thinking that he’s influenced by the animal movies that he has seen. This just proves that what we expose our children to can really influence them on how they see the world. So we better be careful with what we let them watch during screen time.
Since we already made a lion CD art and craft, we’ll now move on to the gentle giant, giraffe.
- yellow and orange paper cut-outs (brown would also be a good choice)
- drawings of eyes and mouth (googly eyes are also great)
- paper cut-out for horns – or better known as ossicones
- Spread the paste all over the back of the CD
- Paste the yellow and orange coloured papers
- Stick the eyes and mouth
- Lastly, stick the horns (or ossicones) on top of the head
As I’ve mentioned in my previous post, it’s getting easier to make CD animal art and craft with my nephew. As of this writing, he has already done three other animal CDs.

Now that Seb is familiar with the materials and directions, he can now work on his own. Prompts are no longer needed. We are very happy of his progress. His work may not be perfect, but he sure has developed into an independent little boy.
Seeing that Seb can already work on his own, we now focus on building his vocabulary. We do this by describing what he’s doing and talking about the animal that he’s making.
At the moment, our little boy isn’t talking clearly yet. At 1 year and 10 months, he mumbles, points at objects, and calls us by our names- Mama, Papa and Tata. He also tries to communicate with us with double syllables, like “ta-ta”, “ko-ko” and the like. With guidance from us, he can imitate words like “Bobot” (the name of our dog), “up” (when he wants us to pick him up) and other two-syllable words.
He can already identify a lot of objects around him, follow directions and do simple commands. He also enjoys different physical activities.
Our little boy is a joy to watch. 🙂 Everyday there is something that he can do better. And speaking is what we are all excited for him to do.
Clearly this is something that we want him to master next. That is why we are more intentional in talking to him while he’s doing other activities, including art and craft activities.
Talk to your toddler while he/she is doing art and craft . Describing what’s happening could help develop his/her vocabulary.
Is there an art and craft activity that your toddler has already mastered? Share your stories with me. <3
And at what age did your toddler learn to speak? I’m really curious. 🙂
