Art projects you can do with your kids

Art projects to do with your child at home:

CLASSIFYING COLLAGE:

OBJECTIVE:
Classifying/catagorizing colors, shapes or objects around our house. MATERIALS:

  • Clear contact paper
  • Masking tape
  • Scraps of paper around your house (felt, tissue, magazine pictures, streamers, ribbon pieces, cut-up calendars, feathers, fabrics, etc.)

    1. Tape a piece of contact paper, sticky side facing out, to a wall or low table.

    2. Gather various scraps (see above) from around your home and allow your little one to examine each item.

    3. Explore the textures, colors, and shapes of each piece and discuss similarities and differences. Then classify them according to their attributes.

    4. Now, allow your little one to experience the sticky feeling of the contact paper. Have him start placing items onto the paper and let him enjoy creating his collage!

    5. Preserve the collage with a second piece of contact paper and frame the artwork with colored masking tape for the edges.

    TIPS:
    Other themes to explore include leaves, flower petals, all things blue, all things found in the kitchen, etc.

    MAGIC TREASURE BOTTLE:

    OBJECTIVE:
    Discovering objects all around us!

    MATERIALS:

  • Clear plastic soda bottle
  • Uncooked rice
  • Trinkets around the house such as: pastas, beads, charms, plastic insects, screws, bolts, buttons or anything that fits inside the clear bottle.

    1. Remove the label from the clear plastic bottle.

    2. Explore your home with your little one to find interesting objects.

    3. Once you have gathered enough objects, discuss which ones will fit into the bottle and drop them in.

    4. Add uncooked rice (fill 2/3 of the bottle with rice) then tightly screw on the cap.

    5. Shake to hide the objects and then twist and turn the bottle to see what treasures appear!

    TIPS:

  • Choose a bottle with a larger opening.
  • Create a Magic Treasure Bottle for each unique place that you have explored with your little one including a walk to the park, a visit to grandma's, or a trip to the beach!
