BRIGHT BUNNY SUNCATCHER
This Tissue Paper is pretty genius! The fact that there is already pre-cut tissue paper for crafts is so great! It takes all the time out of cutting out little pieces of tissue paper to make crafts with your kiddos.
This Cardstock comes in a variety of colors, and you won’t have to run out to the store to buy each individual color plus for only $8. You really can’t beat that price.
Mod Podge is used for all sorts of crafts. It’s an all-in-one sealant with a matte finish and dries pretty quickly. Perfect for all your crafting needs.
Sheets of plastic -Sheet protectors work great when making suncatchers. You can always use what you have on hand.
These Paintbrushes are the ones I’ve been using for all our craft projects. They’re sturdy, and even the littlest of hands can paint all sorts of things with these.
Scissors are a must if you have little ones at home. So these have been my go-to home and school.
Wet wipes and/or damp paper towels -I like having these on hand at home or in the car. Kids are so messy, and you’re always having to clean up something with them. So these packs come in handy, and you can keep one in every room of your home!
Sharpie markers are used all-time in our household. My daughter goes through these like crazy. I love the price and the fact that you can get so many different colors.
- After gathering supplies, invite your child to cut small squares of tissue paper. While your child is working on that, print the heart template on white cardstock.
- After you’ve collected enough tissue paper squares, invite kids to spread a thick layer of Mod Podge over their sheet of plastic.
- Press the tissue paper squares into the Mod Podge, then use the paintbrush to découpage the tissue paper squares directly onto the plastic. This basically means that in addition to the layer or Mod Podge below the tissue paper, you will paint a second on top of the tissue paper squares.
Tip: Mod Podge can get sticky! Keep wet wipes or damp paper towels nearby for your child to use.
- While the plastic sheet is drying, invite your child to cut out the heart template with scissors.
- When the glue is dry, gently bend the plastic sheet and peel the découpaged tissue paper away from it.
- Invite your child to trace a heart onto the tissue paper, then use scissors to cut it out.
- I attached the suncatchers to our window with double-sided tape. They make me smile, and I hope they will make you smile too!
COLORFUL BUTTERFLY ARTWORK
- Butterfly printable: you can find this printable at www.BigActivities.com
I swear by these paints and use them all the time with all our projects!
Fold the paper in half.
Add 3 different types of paint on the left side of the butterfly.
Fold the paper back up and have the colors mix. Then, use your finger to spread the paint on all sides of the butterfly.
Open it up, let it dry, then cut out.
Once it drys, cut out the butterfly and display it. This also makes a great gift for grandparents, teachers, or loved ones. You can also add butterflies to a frame to make a great gift.
You can find this Easter Egg Printable and many others at www.BigActivities.com. They have a bunch of great printables for kids.
You’ll have to print out pictures of your kid’s faces to make this work. Or you can always just have your kiddos paint the eggs and cut them out, and display them. But it looks soo cute with their faces inside!
I love using this construction paper. It’s sturdy, and the colors are vibrant. Not to mention, it’s a great price for 96 sheets of paper!
These markers are great for any kid. The best part about them is that they are washable, so if your kiddos get them all over their clothes or themselves, it’ll come right out!
You can never go wrong with these paints. Not only do they come in all sorts of colors, but again, they are washable, so you don’t have to worry about the kids getting it all over the place and not being able to get the paint out!
- Trace egg shapes on construction paper.
- Have kiddos color or paint eggs with markers, crayons, or paint.
- Cut out egg shapes
- Cut each egg in half.
- Take a picture or find a photo of your kiddo’s faces.
- Print faces out on glossy or regular paper.
- Cut out faces
- Glue the top of the egg onto the top of your kiddo’s head, then glue the bottom part of the egg to the bottom portion of the picture.
- Display! I also made a flower and cut out a picture of my daughter, and placed it right in the middle of the flower.
