This activity is wonderful for all ages. Older children can draw their own toppings and to complete the fun you can make your own pizzas for lunch!
1. Gather your materials. You will need some construction paper, markers, scissors and glue. That's it!
2. Draw some shape toppings. With younger children, stay simple. With older ones, the sky is the limit. Don't forget one big circle for the crust!
3. Color the toppings-wait to cut them out, the small pieces are too hard to color for little guys!
4. Color the crust!
5. While children are coloring the crust, cut the toppings out.
6. Grab your glue and start putting those toppings on.
7. Remember throughout the activity to talk about shapes, colors, and all that other fun stuff. As always, if that is interfering with children's creativity, chill! They are learning by "doing", we don't always have to be teaching!
