Snail Tissue Paper Art

image

We loved getting our hand muscles working in this activity.

Preparation:
You will need:
Tissue paper cut into 5cm x 5cm squares (3 colours)
Cardstock or canvas to work on
All purpose glue
Pencil
Some googly eyes

I penciled in a snail on the cardboard but you can really do this craft with any drawing, butterfly, caterpillar, simple shapes etc

The little ones then squashed the tissue paper into “balls”, and started glueing them onto the board.

Wonderful fine motor experience and a beautiful art achievement at the end.

I then cut out the snail and pasted it onto the family tree we painted on our garage wall.

Mixed Media Art

Mixed Media Art by my 6 year old.
We used different mediums to create this work of art.

1. Mummy drew some clouds on a piece of contact paper and 6year old cut them out and pasted them onto some paper.
2. We mixed some powder paint and threw in some glitter and she got painting. After which we removed the contact paper (you can see we didnt press down firmly to begin with-hence the smudges)
3. We cut some plain white cardboard into 3 rectangles and colored with brown oil pastels for the baskets.
4. I drew some balloons on coloured cardstock and she cut these out and pasted it above.

Easter Handprint and Egg Coloring Activity

We modified the original craft i took from DLTK-Kids a little bit, i helped each child to outline their hand and arm directly onto the wall in our garage and then paint it in to serve as the tree trunk. We then drew around it until we had a complete picture.
I downloaded an Easter Egg Printable which the kids enjoyed colouring in and then sticking it underneath their trees.

Cat Paper Craft

This was one of our favourite paper crafts. I wish i took pictures throughout the process. I printed these from a wonderful website that is full of arty and crafty printables for all ages and holidays. We then used papertacks available from stationery stores so that our kitty’s arms, legs and tail could move.
