Well after a few weeks in lockdown here in the UK, I have been busy creating art activities for my own little one and also sharing these with others (see my blog posts on crafts for kids).
Videos of Crafts for Kids!
I was asked last week by a good friend of mine that streams cooking live on Facebook (Food You Believe It) to create a 5 minute crafty video suitable for kids. The video was to be played during the cooking hour for kids , Thursdays at 11am, as a fun activity they could then do after the cooking was complete… and so Craft for Kids is here! The video was filmed (with a little help from a special guest star) and shared last week. Today I finally got around to editing the video properly and uploading to YouTube for all to see!
So on this blog I share with you the first activity suitable for kids, along with accompanying video on YouTube and materials list – Found Object Printing!
Found Object Printing
Found object printing is basically finding something from around the house, dabbing paint onto it and printing onto paper. It’s great fun (and a little messy) and suitable for all ages. Here are a few examples of the pieces I created with my three year old for the video…
– Paint or various colours
– A paint pallets (or plate)
– A sponge
