School is nearly over and summer is headed our way! YAY! The hope is that the sun shines all summer long but there is the possibility that you might experience a rainy day or two. So, Whimsical Publishing has created this fun summery craft for those rainy afternoons. This crafts includes free printable PDFs and requires minimal supplies. Materials: Scissors, Paper, Coloured Pencils or Crayons, Glue Stick, Coloured Tissue Paper, and our Free Printable PDF Cut-Outs. (It’s also nice to have white card stock but it’s not necessary.)Originally I planned to only make the above cut-out page for this craft but my kids got in on the action and they created two more (below). Thanks Hannah and Hunter! You can download these free printable PDF pages at these links below >
First, colour your printed pages. Then cut out your coloured characters.Next, randomly tear up tissue paper pieces and glue them onto a plain piece of paper. (I like to use white card stock because it is thicker and makes a nicer backing to glue the tissue on.)Glue the tissue paper on until the piece of paper is completely covered. Lastly, take your coloured cut-outs, arrange and glue them onto your tissue paper ocean. Happy crafting and don’t forget to check out all ofour other craft ideas as well!
Over the years my kids and I, Micheline, have done so many crafts together and I’m super excited to share some of them with you here. This paper puppet style craft has always been a hit – especially with my son. He makes them over and over again just so he can create another funny creature. The best thing about this craft is that all you need is some 8.5 x 11 sheets of paper (the same size you use in your regular home printer) and some crayons or markers. The rest is kinda like folding an airplane.
Hannah and Hunter worked hard with me to create these sweet critters you see pictured here!
