Letter S Spring Tissue Paper Art

Spring is brought to you by the letter S. Or at least I hope it is. According to my local news report it's supposed to dip down below freezing tonight and possibly snow. All snow-covered sadness aside, you can go ahead and start celebrating spring with your little artist -- courtesy of the letter S spring tissue paper project.

What You'll Need:
  • Cardboard
  • Tissue paper
  • Clear drying school glue
  • Markers
  • Scissors
  1. Get your cardboard ready. Instead of buying pricey sheets from the craft store, reuse what you have at home. I cut apart an empty box that once held fruit snacks. The bigger the letter S that you want to make, the bigger the box you'll need.
  2. Help your child to draw the letter S on the cardboard using a marker. Draw a bubble letter that is at least 1-inch thick. If your child is struggling to draw her own S, lightly sketch one first in pencil for her. Have her trace over the pencil lines with a bright marker.
  3. Cut out the S. Typically, I'm 100 percent for letting kids do all of their own art themselves. But, in this case my overprotective side is coming out. The thick cardboard is tricky for little kids to cut through, making it easy for them to accidentally slice a finger. Cut through the cardboard yourself.
  4. Tear or cut colorful tissue paper into squares and rectangles. Size the tissue  depending on how big or small the S is. For a larger S, cut pieces of paper that are roughly the size of your child's hand. If you're making a smaller-sized S try 2-by-2-inch pieces. You can let your child cut these out (using children's safety scissors) under your supervision. She can also tear the tissue with her fingers.

  5. Dot glue onto the S, working in 1- to 2-inch sections.
  6. Crumple and ball up the tissue paper (one piece at a time) and press it onto the glue, making faux flowers. Continue on with this process until your child fills up the entire cardboard S.

  4. How to play Satta King game?
    With the advancement of technology, the rules of the game are also changing. A lot of differences have been noticed between the previous Satta King games and the current games. In the past, some Satta number written on pieces of paper were placed in containers or pots. The person who chooses the correct number is declared the Satta king. That means the person is the winner. Nowadays people like to play pc games. Choose the game and start playing.
