Kids really love touching these bubble wraps. Isn’t it fun to blow them up? You can try to make bubble wrap prints and I am sure that you will love trying it again and again.
Printing is always too much fun and there are many printing options. You can use paper rolls, bubble wraps, natural resources, your hands and feet and many things. Have you ever tried bubbles to make lovely prints? It is great breath exercise at the same time. All you need to do is blow out bubbles with a straw and press the paper over the bubbles. But thoroughly admonish your child that he/she should not drink.
Some activities are really like a therapy. While creating, your mind is getting relax. Leaf doodling is really too much fun. You can use metallic paint markers to doodle and if you want them to look shiny, you can use nail polishes as we did. They turned out very cute bookmarks.
Have you seen such crazy and funny birds before? You can paint them however you want. We painted some of them with watercolor while painting some of them with markers. I am sure that crayon will also work great for painting them. You can make a small hole to pass the wing through so it will have wings on both sides.
Painting a pine cone is not as easy as it seems actually, but the result is perfect so it is really worth. Especially if the paint meets with the glitter then pine cones turn into a fabulous crafts. They are hanged on our outdoor wall and look awesome.
As craft lovers, autumn is our favourite season, because it is the hit time to find many different colors and resources in the nature. Luckily in Finland there are hundreds of forests and one of them is just a few steps away from our home. Acorns are great for crafting and creating DIY ornaments.
Another fall craft idea. It was too much fun for my sons to spray water to color paper leaves. MB loved especially the red crepe paper a lot, because it is really like bleeding. Besides process art, it was a very nice sensory play. With these colored leaves you can make your own garland.
We drew rainbows on a paper and dropped water on the colors. It was so nice to watch colors’ spreading and mixing to each other.
We normally use salt dough to make hand/foot prints to save as a nice memory. But this time we tried to make fishes. After giving shapes, we let them dry overnight and then colored with watercolor.
If you haven’t colored pasta yet, you should prepare very soon. You can create amazing sensory play setups and make amazing art with them. We used colored pasta to create amazing sea animals. It was both art and fine motor exercise.
