Getting Creative

  • How fun it is to intertwine one arty activity with another! Today let's talk about making greeting cards from art that your kid has already made!

    From a kid's painting on paper comes a beautiful card for Dad!

    Once again, it's simple and not at all messy!

    Things you'll need are:

    1. 1 chart paper that matches with the card colours

    2. Scissors

    3. Double sided tape

    4. Decorative letters/glitter pens

    Place the artwork on a matching coloured chart paper and cut to size, leaving a half inch border all around.

    You then want to paste the double sided tape onto the back of the artwork and keep it ready.

    Stick only one half of the artwork down onto the chart paper.

    After this is done, fold the chart paper to make the card. Then stick the other half of the artwork down onto the chart paper to ensure no bubbles or creases in the paper!

    You're almost done!

    Use the letters or glitter pens to address the card to "Dad"!

    Voila!

    Share the Love! :)

  • It's every mom's dilemma - 'where should I keep my kid's art?' But one thing's for sure, you DEFINITELY want to keep it. It's those little drawings, paintings and scrawled out letters that steal your heart every time.

    So why not put your kid's art to some good use.

    Don't be afraid to get creative!

    Today we're going to make a Paper Frame out of a little kid's Cut Out Work!

    It's simple and not at all messy!

    Things you'll need are:

    1. 2 different coloured chart papers

    2. Scissors

    3. Double sided tape

    4. Decorative letters

    Place the cut out work on a matching coloured chart paper and cut to size, leaving a one inch border all around.

    Cut the second chart paper to a size larger than the first. An inch larger on all sides should do fine.

    Stick the cut out work on the first chart paper and then that onto the second chart paper.

    You're almost done!

    Use the letters to decorate or name your paper frame before hanging it up in your home!

    Voila!
