Art with Daddy: Painted tissue collage
After our very successful tissue paper painting with s for seahorse, DH thought of doing another Eric Carle inspired piece from the book “A House for Hermit Crab”.
First, the four of us painted the tissue paper together. Click here to get the steps for making painted tissue paper.
Then we cut out the individual characters in the story (we followed the order pretty closely, but you could always make up your own too)…
And pasted on accordingly.
Note to parents:
At the risk of stating the obvious…this isn’t really a suitable craft for an active 23 month old boy.
I made two sets anyway in case DS wanted to be involved, but it ended up being a situation of mommy and daughter sitting at the table trying to put the craft together, and son squeezing in between us, picking a random piece off the table and running gleeful circles round the room while daddy was trying to get his chortling son to return the pieces to the girls to finish the craft.
