Press, Paint, Pull {Toddler Art}

This artwork gives the artist a fine-motor workout!
 Press pieces of drywall tape onto a sheet of fingerprint or cardstock paper. Repeat the process until a desired effect is achieved. 
Then paint the entire surface of the paper with a variety of watercolors. 
When the paint is dry, remove the tape from the paper to reveal the hidden design. Simply lovely!

Sun catcher {Toddler Art}

Catch some rays with these super cute sun catchers!


Materials needed:
Sun shaped template.
Permanent marker.
Wax paper.
Glue.
Yellow and Orange tissue paper squares.
Paint brushes.
Thread.
Hole punch.

Directions:
Tract the template onto a sheet of was paper. Paint slightly water-down glue over the sun shaper and then cover the entire area with yellow and orange tissue paper.  Press another sheet of waxed paper atop the glue-covered tissue paper.  When the glue is completely dry, cut a sun shape by cutting along the marker outline.  Give the sun catcher personality by adding marker facial features.  Punch a hole near the top of the sun catcher with thread and then suspend it near a window.

Let the sun shine!
