Claire loved making the shamrock tissue paper project so much that I wanted to think of a similar Easter project for her to make. What I love about this project is that she can do so much of it by herself.
small canvas (I bought mine at a dollar store)
paint (pink and orange)
tissue paper (yellow or orange)
paper scraps (yellow and orange)
Using masking tape, tape off lines on the canvas. I used a piece of masking tape as a spacer. Then we squeezed some pink and orange paint onto a piece of tinfoil. I added a bit of white paint to each colour to make them a little lighter. Then Claire painted two pink lines and two orange lines on the canvas.
Once that was dry (which didn't take very long), I drew three circles on the canvas. I traced two different size container lids. Claire and I painted the inside of the circles with glue and then she glued balled up bit of tissue in the circles. (I cut the tissue paper into about 1 inch squares.)
Once the tissue circles were dry, we glued on eyes, beaks and legs. That's it.
What sort of Easter crafts have you been making?
