So what’ve you and your kido been doing during this holiday season? You’re done visiting relatives, watching re-runs of favourite kiddie movies and finally the boredom is beginning to set in. Worry not for we are here to help you creative some awesome, easy to do DIY activities to ignite the creative streak in your child.
Hence, before the schools reopen and the study routine takes over your child’s time again, make sure your little one makes the most of their time off and get a brush with their artistic side.
Here are some art and craft activities for kids by Jesal Gandhi (Center Head Bachpan playschool) to ensure just that...
Here’s what you’ll need to make our egg carton art:
– Acrylic Paint
– Egg Carton (not foam)
– Paper Straw
– Pom Poms
– Paint Brush
1. First you’ll have an adult cut out four containers out of the egg carton. Trim around the edges, so that it gives it a rounder shape for the petals of the flower.
2. Squirt some acrylic paint colors onto a paper plate and have the kids paint their flowers. Use any colors you’d like or use a pastel palette like we did above.
3. After the paint has dried you can attach the stem of the flower by gluing it to the back. We used a paper straw so that it was thick enough to hold up the egg carton, if you use something like a pipe cleaner it will just bend. Next choose a colored pom pom and glue that to the center of the painted egg carton.
