Flower paintings and cut-outs
For some, summer has just started but for our kids, it’s school season once again! And you have more ways to be excited about it because the days before it can bring an extra bonding moment between you and your kid through simple home crafts!
Crafts bring out the artist in every kid and we listed the top five ways on how you can help your kid ease from the remaining days of vacation to school time once again. When making crafts, it is important to give kids the freedom to express their natural artist while guiding them along the way. When using sharp or pointed objects, also make sure to practice safety first and help them to prevent injuries.
So what are you waiting for? Bring out the colorful pens, the papers and your artistic hats!
Think about decorating the children's room with pictures of hand-painted flowers, or a paper vase or basket with different kinds of spring-colored lilies for the tea table. You can use recycled materials, old newspapers or colorful magazines, water color, acrylic paint, old buttons, a fork to paint tulips, sunflowers and dandelions. You can also make flower tiaras or a whole bouquet for them to give to their loved ones.
Pinwheels are colorful additions, particularly in the garden, as it gives more color and movement that urges kids to come out and play. There are online templates you can print out for kids to work on, or if you’re the creative type, you could probably draw your own.
