My 5 year old Hayes is “project” obsessed. He loves working on things together whether it’s making cookies, folding towels, or art projects. It brings him so much joy I am always brainstorming fun and easy projects he can handle and we can tackle together. Cal usually ends up joining too, and I feel like the best mom in the world for a few minutes. Here’s an easy one we whipped up recently, confetti art!
First, you can always buy circular tissue confetti online. As usual I didn’t plan ahead so we ended up cutting out our own circles. Fold up your tissue a few times and you’ll get lots of circles per punch. We used a 1 inch circle punch and it was a great scale.Then once you have your circles, let your kiddo arrange the circles on the page. They’re floaty little guys so avoid air vents and fans. 😉
Then once they’re arranged how you like, take a spray bottle of water and mist over the pieces soaking them to the page.
Let it dry just a bit, but not totally. They should all stick pretty good so you can transport your page to a frame!
Place it in a frame of your choice and make sure you secure it tightly so it’s right up against the glass.
Then you’re done! You’ve got a beautiful and graphic piece of art for your wall and it was made 100% by your sidekick and partner in crafting crime.Find all our kid art ideas right here.
