This is a majorly easy children’s art project. It takes the typical glue and tissue paper collage, and makes it super-simple. Your child still gets the same sensory experience (with the texture of the tissue), but it doesn’t involve the extra mess of the glue. Don’t get me wrong – I’m always up for a messy art activity. But, there are some times when this just isn’t possible or you just don’t have the time for a major cleanup. This project is perfect if you’re traveling (toss the materials into a baggie) or just don’t feel like peeling school glue out of your child’s hair for the next few hours.
Here’s What You’ll Need:
· Double-sided tape
· Card stock paper
· Tissue paper
Here’s What to Do:
1. Tear the tissue paper into small-sized pieces. You can also cut it if your child wants extra scissors practice.
2. Stick the tape on to the paper. We made a flower by adding a vertical piece in the center, and then diagonal pieces on top. Later we added two triangle tape shapes to make leaves.
3. Press the tissue onto the tape. Your child can press the paper on flat (like the green stem) or crumple it and make it fluffy (like the petals).
Your child doesn’t have to make a flower. She can pick any tissue paper collage design that she wants. She can make a garden scene, a beach, her dog, a house or even an abstract piece of art. Change up the texture by using flat pieces, small-sized fluffy pieces and bigger crimpled tissue.
