For The Kiddies ~ Spring Art & Crafts Edition Part Two

For The Kiddies ~ Spring Art & Crafts Edition Part Two

Here are the last three projects for our ‘Kiddie Art Gallery’ this month. If you missed part one you can find it here.

Remember, if you decide to create any of these projects with your little ones to shoot me over some pictures or a link to your blog post…I would love to make a gallery feature showcasing those masterpieces!

~Potato Print Wild Flowers~
Materials Needed:Potato, Small Cookie Cutter, Multiple Color Paints, A Sheet of Cardstock, and Crayons or Markers for Embellishments

Cut a raw potato in half. Push a small cookie cutter into the cut side about 1/4 of an inch deep.
Using a sharp knife slowly cut into the side of the potato until you reach your stamped design. This makes it very easy to peel away the unwanted potato and leave you with a nice clean stamp.
Load your deign with paint…
and let you little one stamp away. Once dry use crayons and markers to draw stems and grass. What a cute little garden!

~Cupcake Liner Flowers~
Materials Needed: Several Cupcake Liners, Construction Paper, a Piece of Cardstock, and a Glue Stick

Start by cutting stem strips from a piece of construction paper and glue onto your sheet of cardstock. Layer on the cupcake liners to make the flowers; gluing down each layer. I framed ours for our gallery wall, however, they are so pretty left un-smashed.
I punched some circles out for our center embellishments which we glued on. You can get creative and use several other materials as well like cotton balls, glitter, etc. More easy flowers for your spring time garden!
~Fabric Birdies on Branch~ I admit I did the work on this one myself since my little guy is still young. {I still have so much fun creating whimsical kiddie pieces} This would be great to create with an older child though…even if you just made the birdies.

Materials Needed: Scrap Fabric, Cardstock, Small Buttons, Feathers, Tiny Sticks, Spray Adhesive, and Hot Glue for the birds. {if you choose to put them on the branch you’ll need a Wire Tie, Poster Board, and Branch}

Start by cutting two circles; one from scrap fabric and one from cardstock. I used the rim of a drinking glass for my template.
Use spray adhesive to glue the fabric on top of the cardstock. Once dry fold the circle in half.
Embellish your little birdies with a button eye, burlap wing, felt beak, feather tail, and stick legs ~ These were all hot glued on.
To display on a branch, I simply took a large frame {without the glass} and covered the picture hole with a piece of poster board covered with scrap burlap. Cut two small holes through the burlap poster board and slip a wire tie through to secure your branch. I added a couple coffee filter blooms for fun.

And there you have the projects for our Spring gallery theme. I hope you have fun creating with your little one! Enjoy!
