Alphabet Wall: K is for Kite and Kangaroo
When we suggested K is for Kangaroo for alphabet art, DD replied emphatically “No, K is for Kite!”
So we did both! A kangaroo admiring a kite…or maybe if I now drew a string from the kangaroo’s paw to the kite, it would look like the kangaroo was flying the kite, heh! 🙂
You will need the following materials: Two artblock sheets, some crepe or tissue paper, marker, scissors, crayons, glue.
1. Draw a K on the artblock sheet. Erm, in case you’re wondering why there’s a random flower on the side which has nothing to do with the letter K, DD wanted a flower at the side of the picture and there wasn’t any reason not to oblige. *shrug* 🙂
2. From the crepe paper, cut out a few thin strips for the tail of the kite.
3. Paste on the strips of crepe paper.
4. Have your child colour the K.
3. While your child is colouring, on a separate artblock sheet, quickly cut out a small sheet. Hand it to your child to colour any way they like. On the remaining piece, draw a kangaroo. Also hand it to your child to colour.
5. Cut out the kangaroo. From the small sheet of paper that’s been coloured, cut out a diamond shape and divide that into two large triangles and two slightly smaller ones.
6. Paste on the triangles in the shape of a kite, making sure that the bottom slightly overlaps the crepe paper strips.
7. Lastly, paste on the kangaroo. I wanted to include this picture because I thought it looked so wonderfully busy. The hands there belong to DH, DD and DS who also wanted in on the colouring and pasting action! Too cute! 🙂
