At Elements, keeping children happy and busy is what we do, and we know that it’s what a lot of you have to do at home, as well. So here are two of our favourite art activities that are fun, easy to do and always put a smile on little faces.
Magic with little hands and feet
- Sheets of paper
- Non-toxic watercolours
- A brush
- Your little one’s hands and feet
You could either spell a word, like we have – Love – or paint a turkey!
Have your child pick a favourite colour and paint it over a hand, or a foot. Place it on the sheet of paper, to create your desired image.
- A sheet of contact paper
- Lots of coloured bits of paper
Draw the outline of a butterfly on the contact paper. Give the child glue, and a pile of coloured bits to choose from. Have them glue the bits into the butterfly.
