::: tape and paint
The Easter holidays are nearly at an end and we are all starting to get our heads around going back to work and having fun with our excited children who are all refreshed and raring to go. It is a good time to at least slightly rearrange our rooms, bring out new stuff, head in a different direction maybe, try some new activities that the children will love.
Having a trawl through one of our favourite sites, Happy Hooligans, we found this simple but beautiful stained glass painting idea and thought we’d give it a go as we hadn’t tried it with our own children and thought they would enjoy it. Thanks Jackie, you have some great, simple ideas that are perfect for littlies!
We found some firm white card, scissors and tape.
As always everyone has their own spin on an activity, so we did some strips of tape as above, but then added smaller pieces in squares, triangles, rectangles and zigzags.
We chose some paint colours …
then started to paint – neatly at first …
then just whatever we felt like as that is so much fun!
The hard bit was waiting for it to dry …
but not for too long as we didn’t want the tape to get stuck in the paint. It is a bit of fine balancing act.
We loved the results. Now to try it on the kinder children next week!
