Each season and/or holiday we try to have the kids complete an art project to send to their Great MumMum. She lives in a wonderful assisted living center and loves showing off her room decorated in wall-to-wall art from the kids. We have done everything from wooden wall hangings (which can be purchased for $1 at most craft stores) that the kids paint, coloring pages, construction paper cut outs and more. For Spring I wanted to do something a little different. I decided to do a "Spring Scene". We went to WalMart to buy our supplies and actually did our project while at a hotel...it was so simple and kept the kids occupied for a while...and that is always a good thing!
Supplies:Elmer's Bi-fold Foam Board
Elmer's Glue Sticks
Elmer's 3D Glitter Paint Pens
Elmer's Construction Paper
STEP 1: Cut out the shapes you will need. I didn't use a pattern for anything, just cut free hand
|Flower tops, flower stems, flower leaves and the sun|
|Tree trunk and tree top|
|I traced & cut out the kids hands to use as "grass"|
Step 2: Use the Elmer's Glue Sticks to attach the shapes to your foam board.
Here is what your project will look like after all pieces are glued on:
|Looks cute but it needs some GLITTER to make it POP!|
Step 3: Use Glitter Glue Pens to decorate your foam board! Have fun with it and go wild!
TADA! Finished Project!
I think I'm going to add a current picture of the kids in the center of the tree, but I'm undecided yet. What do you think?
