Are you struggling to come up with fun, inspiring activities for your kiddos this summer break? Becky, from our iFamilyKC Mom Squad team shares a great dimensional art project that you can do with your kids at home this week. Take a look…
Time: Approximately 30 minutes
What you’ll need:
- Large sheet of paper
- Strips of construction paper (variety of colors)
- Wax Paper
What they’ll need to do:
Pour a shallow pool of glue on the wax paper.
After selecting their favorite colors of construction paper, have kids measure .5” strips with the ruler and pencil then cut the strips.
Form the strips of paper into shapes like circles, petals and hearts.
Dip the edges of the shapes into the glue and stick on the large paper.
Continue to add strips in different shapes and colors.
For curly strips, wrap one strip of colored paper at a time around the pencil to curl it.
Why I like this craft:
This isn’t just a good craft to flex little ones’ creative muscle, but with all the measuring and cutting, their motor skills get a great workout, too.
Pro Tip: Center the art work on the right side of the paper, fold and create a very artistic card for grandma or a favorite neighbor.
